I am constantly caught without any brownie mixes and too many cake mixes in my pantry. You’d think I would remember that we prefer brownies over cake. The thing is, though, I know that I can make brownies, cookies and bars with a cake mix with only a few little tweaks. So, when cake mixes go on a good sale, I stock up. That seems to happen more often than brownie sales. These soft, fudgy brownies started from a devil’s food cake mix. By increasing the oil and omitting the water, the mix baked up completely different than a regular cake.
- 1 chocolate cake mix
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup oil
- ½ cup oatmeal
- 1 package peanut butter chips
- Stir the cake mix, eggs and oil together.
- Add the oatmeal and chips.
- Spread batter into a greased 9 X 13 pan and bake for 22-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
