Cake Mix Brownies


Today I pulled out my new GBP book "Dinners On A Dime" and made the Cake Mix Brownies recipe (pg. 208)...they are delicious!!! My only interjection is that it says to use a 9x13" baking pan...however, since it did not make a large amount of batter I felt using this large of a pan would make the brownies too thin. So instead, I used a smaller round baking dish (6 inch). They cooked up nice and high and were great!!! The cooking time was the same so it worked out well.

Cake Mix Brownies

1 (18-1/2 oz.) pkg. devil's food cake mix
1 egg, beaten
1/3 c. oil
1/3 c. water


Stir all ingredients together to make a thick batter. Spread into a greased 13x9" baking pan. Bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes.


Cool then cut into squares. Makes one dozen brownies.

I got tickled when your recipe said "cut into squares" but the picture was your round pan! :) Silly me...

They do look DELICIOUS!

Yeah...I thought about that as I posted it under that picture. Needless to say mine were butchered wedge pieces, but...they were still tasty!! LOL
