  • 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. 🙂

    How did you get them to look so moist and delicious? I used the dry mixture with the wet mixture and I had to add more oil

    Thanks for the lovely brownie video. I would live to try it out but need to know how much brownies I need to use.

    Houuu looks sooooo good will make it soon! Where did you get these pretty jars?

      These look like jars that Sur La Table would carry. I bet they do.

      Target Dollar section!

    I love all the recipes that you post!!! You are amazing. Thank you so much for making me a better baker!!! Never stop because these recipes are better than anything you can buy in a box!!!

    They are so beautiful as well as easy to bake

    I tried it. Omg!!! Amazing. This is gonna be my brownie recipe for life!!

    Gonna make another batch today with walnuts and using chocolate couverture cos I have loads left over from baking something else.

    350 F or C

    I like the way you bake its so simple but look very nice.Hope i can join your group.

    Ladies for those of you who complain about these brownies, go buy a box of brownie mix. However, you still have to do the doneness test on those too. As far as the temperature on your over, not all ovens, bake the same. It may take a little longer or shorter to bake your brownies Use a little common sense, if you don’t have that, stay out of the kitchen or learn how to bake instead of making nasty comments about someone’s baking. Oh by the way, if you eat the whole pan of brownies, you probably will put on some weight. Thank you, a male chef who uses a little common sense.

      I’m so glad you commented! Loved what you had to say…spot on! It’s so easy for others to pick and be negative and quite frankly, ridiculous and caddy! If some of these bakers want to be critical then I say to them go get a job in that field…if they’re so great at it! Of course they may have to have qualifying credentials and most don’t or they would. It’s hard work to do what these bloggers/bakers do and I commend anyone who puts themselves out there! If you don’t have anything nice to say then shut your mouth and quit visiting the site. It’s that simple! Have a nice day everyone and thanks to all the bakers out there who make our lives a little sweeter one bite at at time! Keep up the great work! ❤️

    What should be added to the Homemade Brownie Mix for baking in High Altitude

    Just made this and it came out fantastic! It is delish and so easy to make! Next time some whip cream and some berries will be eaten with it!

    I made these and doubled the recipe. I love chewy brownies and brownie batter. I give these ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Awesome!

    I’m assuming I would at least double the recipe to make these in 9×13 pan?

    Looks so good! When I make brownies, I pour half the batter into the pan, then add some pieces of nice Carmel filled candy bars, then top with remaining brownie batter. Amazing brownies result

    I like this recipe of brownies. So easy and straight forward. Thank you.

    Love the brownies

    Must try glad I seen this on my fb

    There needs to be a “print” option. My handwriting is deplorable, I can’t even read it. Reading from my computer in the kitchen is not an option.

      There is a print button on every recipe. 🙂

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
