Brownie Mix in a Jar

This was adapted from a recipe for extremely large jars – this version fits into a 2lb jam jar, which makes a nice present for someone who likes baking, but is short of time (doesn’t it Laura?).

All measurements are in volume, for obvious reasons.


In the Jar

Layer the following ingredients into the jar (or if you’re just baking the brownies, stick them straight in a large bowl).

  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup vanilla chips
  • 1/3 cup walnuts

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1tsp vanilla essence (optional)


  1. Combine the contents of the jar with the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.
  2. Pour into a greased 8″ x 8″ tin.
  3. Bake at 180°C for 25-30 minutes.
