If you’re going to mix up some batter and eat it instead of bake it, two pieces of advice:

1)  Use the little applesauce cups instead of eggs.  Eating raw eggs probably won’t kill you, but you’re risking a lot on “probably”.  The 3.9 ounce containers equal two eggs.  And can squeak by for three (add a bit more water).

2)  Cake mixes give a lot more volume than brownie mixes.  The texture is different – lighter and finer – but you get a lot more spoonfuls.

I’m thinking of creating a new blog category called “The Good Life”, just for posts like this.
