brownies-msWhen you love to cook, or if you cook often, you look for ways to streamline the processes for some of your most used or favorite items. I love having large batches of items already made that I can go straight to when needed, without having to stop and make them — sometimes just in the amount specified in a recipe.

With this Chocolate Baking Mix in the pantry, you’ll have no reason to deny yourself a chocolate fix when the mood strikes. If you’re looking for that perfect chocolate cake — rich, complex, but light — you’ll be able to whip it up in no time. How about deep, fudgy brownies? Look no further!

This recipe is my answer to when my husband asks for brownies at 10 pm, or when my kids used to tell me they needed cookies for a bake sale the next day. It’s super convenient, but more than that, it produces the lightest, most tender crumb in cakes with a complex flavor from the bit of coffee and cinnamon added, as well as chewy, deeply-flavored brownies, and anything else you might care to invent.

Classic Brownies
This is the kind of brownie that is crackled on top, with a dark, fudgy center, deep in buttery flavor, and totally satisfying.

Instructions
Chocolate Cake and Baking Mix
  1. Sift together all of the ingredients into a large bowl, then using a wire whisk, mix well until the mixture looks perfectly combined. Alternatively, you can use an electric mixer or food processor.
Brownies
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper and grease the sides.
  2. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter together.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the chia seeds and water. Put the cake mix in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Pour in the melted chocolate mixture, chia seed mixture, and syrup and mix well. Stir in the nuts.
  4. Pour the mixture into the pan. Bake for 20 minutes. It will look dry on top but will still be soft inside. Allow it to cool completely before cutting and serving.
Recipe Notes

Store the Chocolate Cake and Baking Mix in an airtight container or ziplock bags at room temperature for 3 to 4 months. Makes 12 cups.

  1. Using a mandolin, shave the Brussels Sprouts, persimmons, and fennel, and place in a large bowl.

Recipe Notes

This salad will keep for several hours, so you can make it ahead of time. The Brussel sprouts will soften as they marinate in the lemon juice.
