Quick and Simple Brownies

Sorry about the lack of posts!! Things have been busy here! I have about a million projects around here that I am working on or are at least floating around in my brain!! My sister and her family were here visiting from Utah last week and we enjoyed every minute of it!! I have a recipe that she made for us that I will be posting soon!!
Anyways...I LOVE brownies!! I found this recipe here while I was blog hopping one day. The other day, I was out of eggs, and CRAVING something chocolate!! I remembered this recipe and decided to try it! Me and the kids LOVED it! My hubby has been out-of-town and these definitely did not last until he got home, but I'm sure he would have loved them too!! These are quick, simple and delicious!



  • 1 3.4 oz package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • milk, amount indicated in pudding directions
  • 1 18 oz box of chocolate cake mix (I used Devils Food Cake)
  • 1-2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or other mix-in (optional)

Directions: Prepare pudding according to package directions. Stir in cake mix, careful not to overbeat or incorporate too much air. Stir in chocolate chips or other mix-in. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched.

Now I'm off to take care of my case of Utah peaches that I have been ignoring for a week. I think I will freeze some for morning fruit shakes and make some into freezer jam....YUM!!

Pin It!


  1. Hi Amy. Thanks for the blog visit and link--you have some great readers! All of a sudden there was a flurry on my beach brownie post because of your post :). Glad you enjoyed them! And I'm SO happy to find your blog. My goodness, what a treasure trove of recipes. Cannot wait to try some!!

  2. Oh those Utah peaches! :) I just finished my 4 boxes, and lemme tell ya, if you are a canner, adding a mint leaf to the bottle sure gives them a nice kick. If you like pancakes, I can give you a super fantastic recipe for syrup. Way yummy... Those brownies look fantastic. This prego mama is gonna go to town with this easy recipe!

  3. Oooh - pudding in brownies - sounds great!

  4. I was inspired by this and used it to create "Layered Bar" Blondies??? I only had butter yellow cake mix and vanilla pudding, I dug around and found coconut flakes, butterscotch chips, semi-sweet chips and pecans. Mixa mixa mixa, poura poura, poura....YUM! I love layer bars and brownies. BEST mix ever! This will be a keeper and maybe even make the cookie plate club? Thanks for posting!

  5. Those brownies look divine! I love a moist fudgy brownie,. I will have to try this recipe soon!
