Homemade Brownie Mix – make brownies anytime when you have brownie mix in your pantry. So easy to make, and it makes the BEST fudgy and delicious brownies!
I first started tried making my own brownie mix a few years ago, and it has quickly earned a spot in my pantry. I am all for Homemade Brownies, I have been making the same recipe pretty much my whole life.
But there is something about being able to mix just 3 ingredients together and have brownies in the oven. Especially when they turn out so rich, fudgy, and some of the best brownies you will ever have!
What Is Brownie Mix
When you go to the grocery store, you see a few different brands that sell brownie mix. It is really all the dry ingredients, and you just need to add eggs and oil or water to the mix to make the batter. It gets you brownies in the oven in just minutes.
This is a homemade version with all of the dry ingredients, and then when it comes to making the brownies all you have to add is eggs and vanilla extract. And it makes some of the BEST brownies ever! So much better than any store bought mix.
What’s In Brownie Mix
- All-Purpose Flour
- Cocoa Powder
- Vegetable Shortening
- Baking Powder
This makes a big batch of brownie mix, so you can have a big tub in your pantry, or you can give as gifts! This has quickly become what my son gives to my dad for every gifting occasion throughout the year. Even the severely baking challenged can make an over the top delicious batch of brownies from this mix.
How To Make Homemade Brownie Mix
- The best way to blend everything together is add it all to a stand mixer that is fitted with a whisk attachment.
- Turn the mixer on a low until everything is well combined. It will take a couple minutes on low for it to come together. Scrape down the sides as necessary to make sure everything is evenly blended.
Store the brownie mix in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 6 months.
