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.
How to Make Brownie Mix
- 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.
To increase longevity, I would simply print out this recipe and keep the ingredients stored separately and mix as needed.
in order 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
