Veganized BRM GF Brownie Pie

Ah…it’s the weekend! Time for some more quick, easy baking. I pulled out my BRM GF Brownie Mix to try…

BRM GF Brownie Mix

The ingredient list on the bag says…

1 package BRM GF Brownie Mix
3 eggs
1/2 C butter, melted

My new, improved, veganized recipe looks like this:

1 package BRM GF Brownie Mix
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 C Earth Balance, not melted
1/4 C sunflower seed butter (creamy)
3/4 C organic soy milk (EdenSoy Extra Original)
1/2 t vanilla extract
Powdered sugar, for dusting

Wet ingredients

ASSEMBLY: 1) Combine the wet ingredients; 2) Stir in the dry mix; 3) Grease a glass pie pan with Earth Balance; 4) Bake at 350 degrees; 5) Check at ~35 minutes, then add time by 5-10 minute increments until a knife in the center comes out clean (mine took 50 minutes); 6) Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then turn it out onto a plate; 7) Dust with powered sugar when completely cool.

In the pie plate, the edges got a little crispy/crunchy, while the center was gooey and fudgey…the perfect combination, in my opinion.

And…this dessert begs for some non-dairy vanilla ice cream!

Veganized & Banan-ized BRM GF Vanilla Yellow Cake Mix

Yesterday afternoon, my 4-year old, Todd, said, “Let’s bake”!

He promptly pulled open the pantry door, and the first thing I spotted was our recently purchased BRM GF Vanilla Yellow Cake Mix. Todd likes to gather ingredients, so I instructed him to take the cake mix bag to the kitchen…

We read the ingredient list on the bag…

1 package BRM GF Vanilla Yellow Cake Mix
3 eggs
1/2 C melted butter or vegetable oil
1/2 C water

My veganized & “banan-ized” recipe looks is this:

1 package BRM GF Vanilla Yellow Cake Mix
(+add 1/2 t cinnamon)
3 ripe bananas
1/2 C Earth Balance
1/2 C organic soy milk (EdenSoy Extra Original)

Standing on a chair at the counter, Todd helped peel the bananas. He “Hulk-smashed” them with a potato masher. Next, he “Hulk-smashed” the (not melted) Earth Balance (EB) into the bashed bananas. He spooned the banana-EB mash into one mixing bowl, and he helped pour the soy milk into the same bowl. Meanwhile, I added cinnamon to another mixing bowl containing the dry cake mix. Finally, Todd helped stir the batter as I gradually added the dry mixture to the wet mixture.

I greased 2 glass loaf pans with coconut oil, and baked the cakes at 325 degrees for 40 minutes. The cakes sat in their pans for ~5 minutes, then I flipped them out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.

The resulting “banan-ized” cake had a subtle caramelized outer coating, and a spongy, dense inside. 3 bananas = excellent binding!

Frequently, Todd won’t even try the baked goods he makes, but this time he ate most of a slice!
