Morning lovelies!! How are you loving the new blog layout and all the goodies I have been adding? I hope you guys are finding it easy to navigate, as I continue to work out the kinks. My goal is to have it all fixed, updated, and ready to go by the end of the month. I am keeping both fingers crossed on that one. At the same time I am working on an Ecookbook for you guys.....think quick meals for everyday cooking. I can't wait to get it finished and ready for you guys to use. I think you are really going to like it. It is chock full of our family's favorite quick meals. Just what all us mamas need right? Yummy and quick is my food language :)
Over the weekend I worked on another yummy ready-made mix. Today we are talking brownies. We all love them right? Chewy, chocolate goodness...oh yeah baby! I can't get enough of them! I love to sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar on top. Yum! This mix is simple to throw together. I do this one in a very large bowl. My kitchen-aid mixer bowl is not big enough for this mix. I use a wire whisk and mix it by hand. I then store it in an air-tight container. Don't forget to label and date it as well.
I love knowing that I have brownie mix ready to go whenever the need to bake some yummy goodness arises (brownies are totally a need haha). I also like to do a double batch when I make the brownies...it keeps those hungry tummies at bay for a bit longer. A double batch of this recipe will make one 9x13 pan. If you only make one batch, then you will be using an 8x8 pan.
This brownie mix will last 10-12 weeks in your pantry. Don't be afraid to add some goodies to the brownies when you bake them (but not to the mix). You can add chocolate chips, peanut-butter chips, nuts, fruit (in place of eggs), etc. Get creative and have fun!
6 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
4 tsp salt
8 cups sugar
1 (8oz can) unsweetened cocoa powder
In a large bowl, combine ingredients until evenly distributed. Store in a large air-tight container. Don't forget to label and date your container! This mix will last 10-12 weeks on your pantry shelf. Store in a cool, dry place.
Our Favorite Brownies
1/4 cup coconut oil (or butter)
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup water
2 1/4 cups brownie mix
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350'. Grease a 8inch square pan. Combine oil or butter, eggs, vanilla, water, and brownie mix in a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. Stir in nuts, if using. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 35-40 minutes, until edges separate from pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or top with my favorite butter cream frosting or my chocolate frosting. Yum!
Have you tried my other mixes yet? Let me know :)
