I bought a bulk bag of brownie mix from my bakery supply. I've made it twice, carefully by the instructions. It comes out very chewy. I would like for it to be a little more of a cake texture. Any suggestions? It is a totally self contained mix--you just add water. (specifically 120 degree water).
I definitely won't buy it again, but it was a 50 lb bag, so I may as well do some experimenting!
If I recall correctly, you add more eggs for a cake-like texture, less eggs for a chewy fudgy dense texture. Try adding a couple of beaten eggs to your next batch.
Yah, what she^^^^^^ said
Try adding different flavorings to change it up some. Nuts, etc too. That won't change the texture but will help change the flavor some.
Sour cream or yogurt might be fun to try too.
Heath bits are good, as are chocolate chips... Try putting a little brownie mix in a pan, then layering peppermint patties on top, then topping the whole thing with more brownie, and bake as usual...
I've also got chocolate chip cookie dough topping, peanut butter brownies, cream cheese filled... Did I mention I *LOVE* brownies?!?
I'd add an extra egg or two, some chopped pecans and half a cup of milk choc chips.
Another version adds chopped caramels to the above add ins.
Now I need to go put brownies in the oven for ME!
I'd probably add a little bit of baking powder to try to fluff them up a bit. try 1/2 teaspoon and an egg? Also, you can use that brownie mix for all kinds of cookie bars, pie crusts, treats, etc. Checkout website's like kraft because they show you how to use their mixes like that.
