How I Turn Brownie Mix Into Cake
While brownies are delicious, sometimes you simply crave cake. Before you head to the store, can you turn your brownie mix into a cake?
No Cake Mix?
Believe it or not, it's not difficult to turn your brownie mix into cake. You simply need to adjust the balance of fat, eggs, and leavener in your mix.
Brownie mix contains a lot more fat than cake mix, so to convert your brownie mix to cake, replace or cut down your oil or butter with applesauce.
Adding an extra egg to your brownie mix will make your mix less chewy and more cake like. If your mix calls for one, add two.
To make your brownie mix rise more like a cake, add about a teaspoon of baking powder. Baking powder will make your brownie mix fluffier, just like a cake.
