He is the one who will feed my hens on occasion. He grew up with a chicken house with 10, 000 broilers, so he is accustomed to chickens. He gets my hens' eggs when he does feed them. I also regularly share eggs with him. Now that he has his nephew, his wife, and child living there temporarily, he will use eggs much faster than before.
He has a group of young people, a religious group not associated with any church, that meets at his house. Several times when they have met, I have taken cookies, sheet cake or brownies to his house beforehand. Sometimes, I just take stuff and figure he can give them away, eat them, or freeze them until they come over. I use a brownie mix that I purchase for pennies.
There are about a dozen cake mixes in my kitchen, gotten free. I don't need to eat them, don't even particularly like some of the flavors, and cannot seem to give them away. Okay, most are some flavor of chocolate...lol...and I would like those to stay here. On the internet there are recipes for making cookies from cake mixes. But, I cannot stand up very long to drop cookies onto a cookie sheet. So, I decided I would see if there were recipes for making brownies from cake mixes. Well, it turns out there are simple and complicated recipes. I am going for a simple recipe.
HERE is a page of links for brownie recipes from cake mixes. I chose this RECIPE.
Cake Mix Brownies
One Cake Mix, any flavor
1/4 cup water
Press batter into a 9x13 pan. Cook at 350 degree for 20 to 25 minutes. Do not over bake.
As I read another page, it seems this will work for strawberry cake mix, just any flavor. Of course, add-ins like chocolate chips or raisins or nuts work, too.
Some of the recipes have fourteen ingredients and start with a cake mix. ??? Not for me!
Oh, he did make the remark after I gave them a frosted sheet cake and apologized for the horrid looking icing that they were "more cookie and brownie people"...lol. I can handle that. I think he thought the sheet cake was harder than cookies or brownies.
Have you ever made brownies from a cake mix? If so, please tell me you did not use the recipe with 14 other ingredients.
