REALLY GOOD BROWNIES

June 18, 2018

The way I see it, every wife/mom/homemaker is on an ongoing journey to gather her kitchen staple recipes. I’d love to reduce box mixes from my kitchen. Not because I’m elitist and think you’re less of a cook if you use them. (I like them for certain stuff: this insane coconut cake, pumpkin cinnamon rolls, cornbreadcobbler, and the thanksgiving must have – pumpkin crisp).

But, I think baking cakes, cookies, brownies, etc. isn’t necessarily always easier with them. And doing it from scratch can be less expensive.

AND ABOVE ALL, let’s make them taste even better! This is my current brownie dude.

    Looks delicious! What about cutting the sugar in half?

      If you’d like! Maybe add more chocolate : )

        Good idea! And I prefer dark chocolate, so I may mix it half and half.Tthen
        Then finish the whole thing off with a flourish of icing sugar…my fav. Quick cake, and all other baked dessert topping!!!
