Easy Brownies

Some of you may already use this yummy recipe. For years, I just substituted applesauce for the amount of oil and mixed the recipe just as instructed. I've found that this recipe makes a 'fudgier' brownie.

Brownie Mix (type that makes 9x13 pan of brownies)
1/2 cup of applesauce

1/2 cup of cold or warm left-over coffee

1 egg


Mix all and put in greased pan, bake as usual. Watch and don't let it dry out too much.



  1. I've got a box of brownie mix in the pantry...I may have to try this.

    Hey Miz Rose Mary...I'm back to blogging if you care to visit. I just chucked all of my rag tag bits of blogs all together on one and it's where i intend on staying...{{{crossing fingers}}}

    Hope your day is awesome! ☼

  2. OH YUM! I love that there is coffee in there;) Hope you have an awesome day Rosemary!!!!

  3. Thanks for the tip Mary. I've never used applesauce before, I'll have to try that sometime. What I usually do though is add an extra tablespoon, maybe a tablespoon & a 1/2, more of oil than what the brownie recipe calls for.

    There is nothing better than a chewy brownie! :-)

  4. RM,
    I will try that it sounds good, I always have left over coffee.
    How is Fall going in your area? I just love this time of year. Been doing a little decorating. Going to be pressing a lot of leaves this year. I framed some last year.
    Hope you are well.

  5. This recipe sounds really good; have to give it a try. Hope you had a great Monday!

  6. Applesauce, yes, but I've never heard of putting coffee in a brownie mix. Sounds interesting. I just made a batch of no bake cookies yesterday and I have been very bad and ate way too many of them. That is what happens whenever I make brownies or cookies.
