|Homemade Brownies Piled on a Plate and made from Homemade Brownie Mix.|
I was intrigued by the Brownie mix in particular because one of my daughter-in-laws, Julie 2 ( We have two daughter-in-laws with the same first name.) is an avowed chocoholic and I thought of this as a gift to her. Both daughter-in-laws work full time and I try to do thoughtful and helpful things for them as I can. After making my adaptation of the mix I noted 5 different recipes are given in which to use it. Sure sounds like a plan to me!
6 C. organic flour (you can use regular if you'd rather)
4 t. baking powder
4 t. kosher salt
4 pounds of sugar (8 cups)
8 ounce can of unsweetened cocoa powder (not drink mix)
Combine all of these ingredients in a large bowl stirring until very well mixed. Store in a cool place in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Note: No preservatives, no artificial anything, and I can pronounce all of the ingredients and know what they are. Use as directed for Brownies to follow.
Best Brownies from Homemade Brownie Mix:
1/4 C. melted butter
2 beaten eggs, (I use organic when I have them.)
1 t. vanilla
2 1/4 C. Homemade Brownie Mix
1/2 C. chopped walnuts, optional
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour 8" square pan and set aside.
