One of the few (edit: many) things my wife and I disagree on is groceries, when I shop I always compare the ingredients of things and buy generic whenever the ingredients are the same, or the difference between generic and name brand does not matter – i.e generic peanut butter is NOT the same as name brand, but ketchup is ketchup…
My wife thinks I don’t love her if I don’t let her get name brand brownie mix –
This brownie mix is pretty good, and if you mix it with fruit you get all manner of even better desserts like by blackberry brownie recipe.
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Flour
- 1/3 Cup Cocoa
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
- *Whatever goodies you like extra in your brownies
- Mix all these ingredients together with a whisk
- Dump mix into a zipper bag or seal in a vacuum seal bag
- On the bag, add the following instructions:
- Add: 2 Eggs, 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil, 1 teaspoon Vanilla. Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes in a 9 x 9 pan
These should stay fresh for at least 6 months. If you want increase longevity, I would simply print out this recipe and keep the ingredients stored separately and mix as needed.
To extend the freshness, store in your mix freezer for up to a year.
*To customize your mixes, add milk or dark chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts, or what ever kinds of add-ins you like in your brownies!
This costs about .30 each, whereas Store-bought Betty Crocker Brownie mix is $2.39 for more than a $2.00
