Brownie Mix

This one I haven't tried myself.

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

Sift all dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in shortening and put in an airtight container.

To use from mix: Put 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla in a mixing bowl; beat slightly. Stir in 4 tbsp melted butter (cooled, hot will cook the egg!). Spoon in 2 cups of the brownie mix. Beat with a spoon until somewhat smooth. Spread into a greased and floured 8x8 square pan, bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes.

chuckle AWESOME!!!!

This one I HAVE tried and it's awesome!! This is a great recipe, make the mix and keep it in a tightly covered container!

Brownie Mix

6 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 teaspoons salt
8 cups sugar
1 - 8 ounce can baking cocoa
2 cups vegetable shortening

In a large bowl combine the first 5 ingredients. With a pastry blender, cut in the shortening until evenly distributed. Store in a large, airtight container. Keeps 10-12 weeks. Yield: about 17 cups of mix.

To Make Brownies:

2 1/2 cups brownie mix
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Confectioner’s sugar (optional)

In a mixing bowl combine the first four ingredients. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Spread into a greased 8" square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until top tests done. Cut into squares while still warm. Once cooled, dust with confectioner’s sugar if desired. Yield: 9 brownies. You can also double this recipe and spread it into a greased 9" x 13" pan, baking it for 20-25 minutes. These are great plain or frosted, and make the best brownie ice cream sundaes!

Frosting

6 tablespoons butter
Cocoa: 1/3 cup for light
1/2 cup for medium
3/4 cup for dark
2 2/3 cups confectioner’s sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk (more or less)

Cream butter and vanilla in a small bowl. Add cocoa and confectioner’s sugar alternately with milk. Beat to spreading consistency. (Use more or less milk, depending on the consistency you desire—I prefer it to be thicker—then it’s almost like fudge on top of the brownies—something a little smoother might be desirable for frosting cupcakes.)

Amanda I finally made the Brownie Mix! I went ahead and made a batch of brownies and you were right they are awesome and soooo easy! I was going to make the Bisquick mix too but I don't have an empty container to put it in! Looks like I need to make a trip to the Dollar Store for a container!

I'm glad you liked them! I am making my mix tomorrow, I had to stop at the store and buy some cocoa and shortening, I was running way low.

Can I have a brownie?

Nope! Just keep it in a sealed container in the pantry or cupboard

Hi, ladies. I was just scrolling through the lists and saw this one and thought I'd pop in.

It just so happens I was searching for a mix earlier today and so I think I will post it here for others.

ONION SOUP MIX

3/4 cup instant onion flakes
1/3 cup instant beef boullion granules
4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp celery seed, crushed
1/4 tsp sugar

Combine & store in airtight container.

5 T = 1 pkg onion soup mix
