Lately, I’ve been wondering what to do with all my canning jars. As the winter goes on, the cans start to empty and they just sit around the apartment. The very tiny apartment, if I could just remind you of that. So I’ve been putting them to work in different, more creative (maybe?) ways! I have a go-to brownie recipe that I use all the time. But, premaking these brownie mixes and storing them in mason jars means I can whip up brownies in literally just a few minutes.
Homemade Brownie Mix (adapted from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures)
Serves: 9 (9×9 pan)
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup salted butter, completely melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and sugar in a large bowl. Pour into jars to save for later.
Or, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Stir the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract, into the flour mixture until smooth and well combined. Pour into a greased 9×9 pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, until fully cooked through (a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean). Let cool or serve immediately.
Can’t wait to show you the many variations of brownies we have going this week. Tomorrow is an absolute favorite of mine!
Until the next time my oven is on…
