I made these: BOX MIX STYLE BROWNIES
They were very good with a great texture, but as much as I love bittersweet, they were a little too bitter. Next time I'll add a few more Tbsp sugar:

That's really funny. Why not just call them homemade brownies?

I thought it was odd too.

All of the recipes used to be for items like Mom or Grandma made, now it is just like the ones in the box.

I suppose it could be a good idea to make a box style item for your family without any additives or preservatives.

So Addie, now you know "of" someone who does not like chocolate chip cookies.
You could also use butterscotch chips. Today there are all different flavored chips out there to try. Sometimes I mix them up.

I made these for the upteenth time (I use half the amount of salt), and they remain my absolute favorite brownies. Outstanding!

Corn bread in the lid from my Mother's day gift from DD - Lodge L8DD3 Double Dutch Oven and Casserole with Skillet Cover, 5-Quart.

I LOVE IT!!



I made pot roast in it first then wiped the steam off the lid and baked the corn bread.

Question Orange cake with white chocolate

I'll a rookie in the kitchen and have been assigned as mum's cake baker for her birthday. I've chosen to do an orange cake and have this ambitious idea of somehow pouring melted white chocolate into the batter as it bakes.

I don't mean pour the whole lot in one go for obvious reasons but dribble some in, put the cake back in, pull it out 10 minutes later. Repeat.

Suggestions/comments anybody?
