Sorry for the hiatus, this no pantry business is quite the hindrance. I decided for this weeks baking to make something a little less “high-maintenance”. My mother-in-law and I both love Oprah, and one of our favorite episodes lately was the “My Favorite Things” episodes. We were both intrigued by the Bakers Edge brownie pan.
and the Ghirardelli brownie mix, because Ghirardelli has some of the most amazing chocolate.
So for Christmas my awesome mother-in-law gave me both the pan and the mix. Today, I decided to break them out and test both. I set the oven to 325 degrees and got ready to bake. First I mixed the oil, water and 1 egg.
Then I added the brownie mix, which had chocolate chips in the mix, yum.
I poured the mixture into the pan, and this was a little tricky, I was not used to pouring into a pan that had a lot of sides, so I ended up getting some of the mixture on to the sides of the pan.
I also thought that the depth of the pan meant that the brownies were going to be super thin. I made sure the oven was ready, put the pan in and hoped for the best. 40 minutes later the brownies were ready!
I let the brownies cool, and when they were ready, I used this handy tool that came with the pan to release the brownies from the pan.
While the brownies were a bit thin, they were chewy and moist, just the way I love them! I would recommend the pan to anyone who loves chewy brownie edges, and I would recommend the brownie mix to all chocolate lovers! These items definitely make my favorite things list.
