Hack the Recipe!

Since, I recently posted about how I’m not always up for using recipes, I thought I’d share a recipe hack that I discovered earlier this week.

Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownies are not actually very chewy. if you follow the directions on the back of the box. Granted, they are good, but they are cake like no matter whether you follow the chewy directions, or the cake like directions.

If you really want to get fudgy chewiness out of this box you only need to use 1 egg (not 2 or 3), 1/4 cup water (as suggested), and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil (not 1/4), and of course the mix.  Cut out a few minutes on the bake time (I didn’t count..sorry!) Oh, and keep the same oven temperature!

*As a final note, Duncan Hines, I really do appreciate your boxed mix of brownies and many of your boxed cake mixes because not only are they tasty, they are also lactose free. A lactose free cake mix that is tasty is indeed hard to come by. Maybe you could work on a lactose free icing?…   ::wink wink::
