We tried out a couple of unsuccessful recipies before landing on this one. It's more like a little chocolate cake than a brownie, but looks quite pretty and taste pretty darned good for an Easy Bake recipie! I wasn't sure if the "quick chocolate milk mix" referred to a powder or a syrup, so I used chocolate syrup and added a teaspoon of powdered unsweetened cocoa too. Also, I used 2 teaspoons of real butter, rather than 1 & 1/2 tsp shortening. As for the glaze...I left the milk out altogether. I'm much more fond of the "real" ingredients than the pricy chemical-loaded pre-made mixes for the Easy Bake Oven.
I LOVE this recipe. Originally I was gonna go name brand, but It's hard to feed a family of 6 on a budget. A family friend loaned us their EZ bake knowing we were seeing from pretty hard times. My husbands currently facilitated in a local penitentiary. It's homemade recipes like this that bring our family together. God bless!
This was fun to make with my daughter after running out of the mixes that came with the oven I was happy that I could make the baking fun go on without having to go buy more expensive mix. It came out great even dad got in on the fun :)
I had fun making this recipe with my sweet little niece, Rebekah!
My daughter and her friend made this today and they thought it was delicious. Photo by the kids...sorry it is blurry. Thx Pamela.
This was great! Came out like "real" brownies! My daughter was thrilled and so was my son! BTW, I made two recipes of the brownies, but one recipe of the icing was plently for both brownies!
We baked the brownies for 15 minutes but it still didn't cook in the middle! It was "heavy" & TOO moist, you know what I mean. We used Milo powder instead of Quick chocolate milk powder. The glaze was perfect but the brownies was lack of sweet. I don't know why. At least we had fun baking the brownies! ;D
