All right, a brief perusal of this blog will bring you to the conclusion that I'm not exactly a "pre-packaged mix" sort of gal. Now, part of this is because of the whole gluten-free thing - which makes most mixes off-limits. And part of it is that I sort of consider it cheating.
But I cheat from time to time. In fact, I have a pantry full of mixes at the ready when I'm either in a rush, or just not home and the Domestic Sergeant has to (*gasp!*) bake something for the girls. Note, none of these mixes have been provided to me - unless you count my mother dropping off a grocery bag full. Tonight, I needed a chocolate fix, so I got out this:
King Arthur Flour Gluten-free Brownie Mix. As mixes go, this one is pretty darned easy. It requires nothing more than a mix, a whisk, oil, water, and eggs. It makes an 8" pan of brownies, with very little effort. Plus, it's extremely easy to add other goodies into the batter. This time, I added 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips.
The brownies are delightfully chewy and fudgy, with only the slightest hint of the grittiness so common to gluten-free baked goods. The box says they stay good for 3 days, but to be honest, I've never had a pan last that long so I can't speak to that.
