Shortcut brownies

November 8, 2009

I am thankful for the many wonderful gluten-free mixes widely available at grocery stores. One of my favorite mixes is Trader Joe’s (16z) brownie baking mix. This mix has appealed to my pocketbook more than any other product on the market. But take my word for it, your brownies will taste heavenly only if you stray a bit from the directions printed on the back of the bag. Use the mix, but follow my directions below.

  • 16z gluten free brownie baking mix
  • 1 stick (1/2 C) of melted, salted butter
  • ¼ C milk
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a square 8×8 inch baking pan. Mix all of the ingredients above thoroughly in a mixing bowl and pour the resulting batter into the baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes on the top rack of the oven. Let the brownies cool at least 15 minutes before cutting them into squares and serving.
