  • Homemade Brownie Mix

    filed under: Brownies on June 19, 2014

    I am a sucker for a good brownie recipe. I like a consistently good brownie.  I like it to have a flaky crust.  I like it chewy inside.  I like to taste the chocolate. I wanted the best homemade BROWNIE MIX and this is it!

    Homemade Brownie Mix

    What is Brownie Mix?

    When it comes to baking I also love convenience. And being able to dump stuff in a bowl and make magic.  So this is my attempt to capture the ease of a box brownie mix but without the other icky stuff.

    Brownie Mix Uses

    This recipe tastes amazing and easily lends itself to adaptations. For instance, you can add any sort of chocolate chip, white chocolate chip, M&M’s, Nutella, etc. You can also easily double the recipe or pair the brownie mix with frosting.

    One thing to note, this brownie mix recipe is not huge.  It yields 9 brownies. (Most people don’t have five kids like me and prefer “normal” size pan of brownies.)

    Another bonus? There are only three “wet” ingredients.

    Butter, eggs, and vanilla.

    And the brownie recipe can be made in one bowl too.

    How awesome is that?



    Brownie Recipe

    I think these brownies are really good, but I especially loved them when paired with a sweetly tart fruit like raspberries.

    And stacked in a pile of three and covered in chocolate sauce.

    That’s just how I roll folks.  That’s just how I roll.

    Here is the perfect chocolate frosting made just for these brownies! My secret ingredient is the perfect compliment to the perfect homemade brownie recipe.

    Did you happen to see this?

    The most decadent brownie mix ever - perfection from scratch!

    To make this brownie I used the same recipe above then added chocolate chips to the recipe as well as a couple on top after I took them out of the oven.

    Here is my BIG SECRET DON’T TELL ANYONE TIP: Remove them 5-10 before they are done. This is not recommended if you are opposed to eating brownie batter!! But if you love ooey gooey chocolate brownie amazingness then it is worth trying. 🙂

    Hi.. I like it so much your Vedio. Most of all I like brownies its perfect for my children.. I make it now.. Thank you so much I learn how to make a cake👍👍👍

    HI. I wanted to ask if I want to add chocolate chunks or chocolate chips in this recipe, what would be the measurement for that?
    I have a picnic planned tomorrow and I’ve already made the mix. Just have to add some wet ingredients. Looking forward for a reply soon. 🙂

    I absolutely loved this recipe! But I did make a few alterations. For those who like to have a slight bitter taste i suggest using dark chocolate cocoa powder instead. I also only used 1 1/2 cups of sugar since I added the chocolate chips.

    Overall, I will definitely be using this receipe again!

    Not trying to be a pain, but is there something missing from this recipe? I just made it, even took it out 8 minutes early like recommended, and they came out nothing like brownies, more like a dry cake. I make brownies every week, always try a new recipe (still trying to find “the one”) just made a different recipe right after this one, and it came out fine. Very confused! I’m sure other people efforts came out fine, not sure what went wrong here. Double checked my oven temp, and even that is fine.

    Hello I see in the video you added chocolate chips but you didn’t have it listed in the recipe

    Can u please share recipe of a pie crust ? I have a pumpkin filling tin but don’t know how to make the crust .

    This recipe was not finished baking after 22 minutes, had to bake for an extra ten minutes and they ended up too fluffy, not chewy at all. Just not good.

    You have inspired me! Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes. Today I am making your chocolate cake recipe. I’m using my mason jars to bake it in.

    I tried these,doubled the recipe,added pecans they were great and very simple.

    I made a keto version of this with 140g xylitol and 20g of coconut flour instead of the sugar and flour and man, these are crazy good. If you like cicis pizza’s brownies, then try the revision for keto. You are welcome.

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
