Combined brownie and cake mix?

Posted on 02/12/2011 by snopearl69
Hey guys! I have a box of brownie mix and a box of yellow cake mix. I'd love to make a dessert that incorporates both of them (I'm envisioning something that has separate cake layers/brownie layers so both are emphasized, but it doesn't have to be like that). Anyone have any ideas or experience using both types of mixes together to make a dessert?

You could bake both & then layer them.

I'd love one day to make these 'burgers' which combine cake and brownies.

When I was little, my mum and I made a single cake which was like that - though the 'burger' was probably a layer of chocolate cake instead. Or maybe even chocolate icing over normal cake. So equally you could bake the cake in two sandwich tins and the brownies in a third. (You'd probably have leftover brownie mix to put into another tin I suppose, since you're making them from box mixes.) I think we used marzipan for the french fries.

I've never done this, but I would try making both mixes then putting the brownie mix into the pan (I always use a square one for my brownies but since they'll be two mixes maybe a 13x9 would be best) and then scooping dollops of the cake mix on top and use a knife to swirl the two batters together. Kind of the way you would do with a marble cake or cheesecake.

I don't have any suggestions (sorry!), but be sure to post here again after you've done something with them. I'm very curious to find out what you choose and how it turns out!
