Adjustments

Adjusting to a new schedule really means making time for the things in your life that make you happy. While I love being blue, the requirements of working a 40 hour week doesn’t afford me as much time for baking and blogging, certainly not as much as devoting 40 hours a week to baking alone. So… “making time” means, when a half hour lunch break turns into two hours, it’s time to turn up the heat.

Lately, I just can not get enough chocolate. I’ll enjoy it, and consume it in any form, but brownies are one of my favorite chocolate desserts – so with a little extra time I decided to experiment with the box of brownie batter in my cupboard.

Brownie Cakes

These little cakes are very reminiscent of Julia Child’s Reine de Saba Cake. They have a thin outer crust encasing a moist, sinful, decadent cake center full of chocolaty excellence. These little bundles of joy, however, are much simpler and quicker.

1 box brownie batter mix
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup sour cream
¾ vegetable oil
2 eggs
¼ cup milk
Mix together until smooth
Pour into greased cupcake tins, or mini bundt pans
Bake at 350°, 20-25 minutes or until cake springs back to the touch
Yields 12 bundt cakes
