|a little underdone, but delicious|
My neighbor around the block who takes my garbage to the road has a religious group meet at his house. They are mostly young people and are not associated with any church. I have made several sheet cakes from mixes for them. One time I mentioned something about brownies or cookies or something. He said, "We are more brownie or cookie people than cake people." A gentle hint? Yes.
Since I had all these free cake mixes that I was going to give away, I decided to look for a way to turn them into brownies. My mood and back were in no mood to make cookies from the cake mix like I have done in the far past.
The brownie above was cooked in a cup and accidentally taken out of the oven too early. So, the bottom you see is a little moist. Okay, it was gooey. Theirs are done.
I used a Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mix.
Recipe for brownies from any cake mix:
Preheat oven:350 F
Place in bowl:
box of cake mix
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup water
Beat well. Put into 9x13 inch pan (or whatever size you prefer).
Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (I did not do this).
Could anything be easier? There are many recipes online to make brownies from cake mix. However, some of them have a dozen more ingredients. Why bother? I wanted simple. I am quite sure a cup full or maybe less of any add-ins would work.
Now, don't put the box in the bowl like I said. Empty the ingredients into the bowl.
I took the brownies out of the oven after I turned off the oven. I went straight out the door and drove to his house. No, no frosting since I cannot afford frosting today and did not want to stand and make frosting. The girl who took these looked happy.
I have a white cake mix that is going to get some special add-ins, just not sure what. A German Chocolate cake mix will get the icing on the brownies. The Double Fudge cake mix brownies will probably stay here.
A bunch of young people were painting his porch! I will take a picture because it is striking.
Have you ever had Red Velvet brownies? Do you make cookies from cake mix?
