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.

Ingredients:

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)

Recipe:

  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.
