Aunt Cousin Ceil is a baking queen. She’s the person I email when I have technical questions about why my cake is too dry, or how to ship baked goods and have them arrive at their destination all in one piece.
I also email her about questions of the heart, which I’m entirely sure are related to baking.
Here’s some unsolicited chocolate advice she sent today:
I always keep a box of the fat free brownie mix from Trader Joe’s baking aisle in the house for a quick treat. It uses only the mix and a cup of low fat or fat free yogurt and I add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I sometimes put chopped walnuts on the top before I bake it and it is pretty good in a pinch. Also no guilt associated with it. I am a big believer in eating sweets and will gladly sacrifice all of the fat and cream to get my chocolate!!
I haven’t had Trader Joe’s fat free brownie mix yet, but I’m going to make it a point to try it soon.
Do you have any chocolate tips of your own? Please share them in the comments below.
*Disclaimer: The picture posted here is of a homemade full fat brownie. Please don’t ask me to explain why I didn’t have time to go to Trader Joe’s to pick up brownie mix, but did have time to whip up a quick batch of Baker’s Chocolate One Bowl Brownies, so moist and fudgy, and please don’t ask me what I did with this extremely photogenic brownie after taking its picture.
