EASY Homemade Brownie Mixes

I tried something new and love it. 

I really like store-bought brownie mixes. I have made lots of homemade brownies before and I like them, too. But there is something special about those boxed ones that I just can't describe.  I decided to make my own brownie mixes and it worked GREAT! I haven't bought brownie mixes for a while now because these ones are really just as good! Plus, they are cheap and easy to throw together.

The first time I made the brownies my son said: "Mom these taste like real brownies!"  This really made me laugh that he thinks "real brownies" can only come from a box mix. But, I was happy to score a point for having them taste like the box mix brownies he is used to!

Here is what you need to make the mixes:

1 1/4 c. flour
2/3 c. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
2 c. sugar

Mix all of these together and store in a Ziploc bag or other airtight container.  

To prepare the brownies add:
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. melted butter

Mix and pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes.

How long does the mix last in an airtight container before baking?

I am not entirely sure- I have had mine for several months now & they are still great. I would guess that as long as all of your ingredients are fresh they will last for a long time.

Do think think this could be made in a deep 9x9 pan? Would you need to adjust the temp or baking time??

I am sure it would be fine. You would cook it at the sea temperature, just for longer since it is thinner. I would guess up to 10 minutes longer, but you'll need to check it to be sure.
