Brownies without an oven

I’ve been wanting brownies since I planned on making them on Thursday night for the kids and found out my oven is broke. It needed a new element. So we’re waiting on our element to be shipped to us. I will have me some brownies! Here’s what I did: All of the sites I looked at had recipes that called for a mix. Well, I didn’t have one so I just made this brownie recipe I used off of Allrecipes.com

1/2 cup vegetable oil (I did 1/2 c applesauce instead of oil)
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (eliminated this cause I was out)
2 eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Here’s the recipe for the brownies in the crockpot: CDKitchen.com

INGREDIENTS:
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup water
1 large egg
1 box (16 ounce size) brownie mix
1 can (14 ounce size) sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup rolled oats (not instant)
1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

PREPARATION:
Use a 2-quart slow cooker.

Put the melted butter into your crock, and add water, egg, and the package of brownie mix. Mix until none of the brownie powder is left dry; the batter will be quite thick.

Pour the can of sweetened condensed milk over the top. Add the oats, then the coconut, then the walnuts. (I’ve never made brownies with sweetened condensed milk I used fat free hope it still turns out ok).

Cover, but prop the lid open with a chopstick or skewer, and cook on high for 2 to 4 hours.

After 2 hours, test with a knife, and continue to check every 30 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand with the lid off for 10 minutes before cutting. I’ll let you know in a few hours how they turned out.

  2. Pretty genius… I would have never thought of that, I would have just given up! 🙂 Good to know for future use!

    1. Oh I may have to do that this weekend! Thanks!!! Great way to keep the house cool and still get those brownies.

  3. I have an electric roaster pan that will cook anything, including brownies. But I’d never have thought a slow-cooker would work. Hmmmmm

  4. This is genius!! I would have never thought that you could bake in a crockpot! Very clever especially when it’s hot outside and you don’t want the oven on! I love it! I will be using this recipe.. all summer long!
