QUESTION: How can I make a cake from a brownie mix?
I have two boxes of brownie mix. I want to make a cake. Is there any way I can do this with the brownie mixes and add something more to it.
Yes, it is possible to make a cake using a brownie mix, although the cake will be much denser than the average butter cake. Simply add an extra egg more per brownie mix then is called for, and use cold water if the mixes call for hot water. Extra ingredients such a a cup of miniature chocolate chips or chopped nuts can be added for additional flavor and texture. For best results, bake the cake in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, don't attempt to make it a layer cake. Frost your "brownie cake" when completely cooled.
