Does anyone have an easy brownie recipe? I know Jesse just tried his first brownie this year - a Pillsbury one! I do know someone sent me a recipe using the Quaker Double Chocolate Chunk Muffin (they're really cupcakes IMHO) mix to make brownies, but I lost it.

Canadian specific - if it does require cocoa (i.e., not using the Quaker mix), what cocoa do you feel okay with?

Many thanks and best wishes! [img][/img]

Here's my Brownie recipe. I think they're pretty yummy. I'm in Canada and I use Fry's Cocao - which is readily available in store's here. It's manufactured by Cadbury and seems to be labelled well - it states "may contain milk ingredients". Actually this is the brownie recipe on the Fry's Cocoa can.
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter
1 cup Fry's Cocoa
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in cocoa (I always sift my cocoa through my mesh strainer before adding it to any recipe - gets rid of any lumps). Blend in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. pour batter into greased 9 by 13 inch baking pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until done.
To be completely accurate - the recipe on the can calls for nuts - but I always ignore that (obviously).
Anyway I think these are very good so I hope you try them.

Do you like cake-like brownies or fudgy brownies?
On the back of my Baker's chocolate box, there is a easy recipe for one-bowl brownies. We think it's an awesome fudgy brownie recipe. I can post it later if you'd like. We're not into cake-like brownies.

ryan's mom, what is the difference between the two? [img][/img] The only kind I really know of are the kind that I used to be able to buy at the store and just bought recently from Pillsbury because I think it was a new item here so Jesse got to try his first brownie.
It's for the kids (seriously [img][/img] ) so either kind would be fine, I think.
Best wishes! [img][/img]

I buy the Hershey's baking chocolate (U.S.) and they have a recipe right on the box. Yum! They taste best really fresh.

Easiest brownie recipe I know...
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 small box chocolate pudding
2 cups milk
1 package chocolate chips or choc. chunks
Make pudding according to directions with the 2 C milk. Add cake mix and stir. Add chips. Pour into greased jelly roll pan (10 X 15 inches). Bake at 350 degrees for about thirty minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if you want. YUMMY! [img][/img] Kristi

Kristi, excellent! Someone posted awhile back about using cake mix with a can of pumpkin. I tried it and it baked up nicely(without eggs, which is great for us), but I could taste the pumpkin. Not entirely bad, but an odd taste others might notice.
I was wondering if I could sub another thing like applesauce or pudding and your post indicates it works fine. I will try it another time. Thanks! becca

The cake-like brownies have the consistency of regular cake. Fudgy brownies are the melt-in-your-mouth kind of ones--moist, chewy, almost fudge-like consistency. We like those, because in our family, fudge rules over cake any day.

ryan's mom, it feels as though I haven't had fudge since time began, actually, since PA began, only because I could never make fudge myself (ask my Mother about me working over the stove when I was a teenager and how I never got it right [img][/img] , truly), so the fudge style sounds wonderful. Recipe please?
Best wishes! [img][/img]

Will post the recipe tomorrow. We've spent the evening finishing up decorating for Christmas and it's bedtime. My poor feet are starting to ache and the bed seems like a very cozy place to me right now.

Try the "Killer Brownie" (I know - in hind site a stupid name but they really are to die for!) recipe I posted in this Forum some time ago. It's based on a mix so it's very easy.
