Years ago I bought this recipe book. It is filled with mix recipes for breads, brownies, cakes, cookies, dressings, drinks, etc. This book has been used until it has fallen apart! These mixes are so good to have on hand to make cookies or brownies or pancakes in a hurry!
Earlier this year, we met together as a Relief Society and made 2 kinds of pantry mixes; brownie and "Bisquick." Here is the recipe for the brownie mix.
6 cups flour
4 teapoons baking powder
4 teaspoons salt
8 cups sugar
1 (8 oz.) can unsweetened cocoa
2 cups vegetable shortening
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add sugar and cocoa. Blend well. With a pastry blender, cut in shortening until evenly distributed. Put in a large airtight container. Label. Store in a cool, dry place. Makes about 17 cups of brownie mix.
Here is the recipe to make the brownies:
4 cups brownie mix
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix well. Pour in 9x13 pan. Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. (Don't overbake)
This is very easy to make and makes a great gift for neighbors. So...if my neighbors don't want apricot jam or popcorn cobs, they can have brownie mix!
