Have you had a busy week? Weekend? I sure have. Clara started school last week (Yay!) and I worked another weekend, so it feels like things have been nonstop for awhile. This is good though, I do busy much better than bored.
I didn’t have a lot of time to bake Jesse’s weekly work treats, but threw together a quick doctor job on a boxed brownie mix. Making cheater brownies is fun, almost limitless in possibilities and easy. The last part being the most important right now.Lemon Frosted Black Raspberry Brownies Printer Version
3 tablespoons Smucker’s Simply Fruit Seedless Black Raspberry Spreadable Fruit
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 package Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix
1 tub lemon frosting
Zest of 1/2 a lemon
Dark colored berries for garnish, optional
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with foil and grease the foil.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together spreadable fruit, water, oil, and egg. Add the brownie mix and stir until just combined. Pour batter into the pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes until done. Cool brownies completely in the pan on a wire rack.
3. Mix lemon frosting and lemon zest together. Spread over cool brownies. Freeze brownies for 1 hour for easier cutting. Cut into strips and strips into rectangles. Garnish individual brownies with berries if desired.
