If you have school-aged kids, chances are you’ve heard the words, “Oh, yeah. Mom? I gotta take stuff to school for the bake sale tomorrow.” Chances are also you’ve heard this words in the middle of the night on a weeknight, or at least right before bed.
Assuming that the words “bake sale” imply some sort of use of the oven, these are the brownies I go to when I’m ambushed with that type of declaration.
1 box yellow cake mix
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan.
Mix cake mix, eggs and oil by hand (it’s kind of sticky for a mixer, but your results may vary) until blended.
Mix in the chocolate chips
Press into pan (I think cake mixes are smaller in volume these days because the batter barely covers the pan, but it will work) and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until lightly browned. Cool; cut into bars.
I was going to make some for you guys and have you all over to eat them, but when I went to get the things out, we were sadly lacking in cake mix and chocolate chips as someone has obviously broken into my emergency stash (I have teenagers), so that’s why I didn’t say above that I, “always keep the ingredients on hand”.
I guess I could say that I always think I have the ingredients on hand.
Regardless, I call this one “Eggs and Oil without cake mix”:
Do as I say, not as I do, as I’m obviously not finished ordering my disorder.
