Need Help With Betty Crocker Brownies And Cookies
Posted 13 February 2013 - 05:23 PM
I have no problems with the cake, the altitude directions are the same except for the temp and baking time.
Does anyone have any idea of what I could do to make these mixes work?
Thanks - MO

I turn my oven up apx. 10-25 degrees making those cookies. I think it's the altitude that makes me cook my stuff at higher temps, not lower. Ive tested my oven temp and it claims its spot on. I've only cooked gluten-free in this oven ( and its gas) and I've struggled the whole time. It took increasing the temp on most things....otherwise it just bakes forever and never DOES anything.
And I like crunchy chocolate chip cookies...the mix is crunchy to me not fluffy.
I'm at 2700 ft?? We're right on the line of high altitude baking.
I don't think I've tried the brownies. I tried the cake mix and it came out terrible.

Shadow, I don't think that we can use the brownie mix this high in our altitudes but the other mixes will work just fine.

I made the brownies at sea level and they also came out like the black tar thing. The next time I undercooked them a bit and although they still fell flat as a pancake they sure were good!

I'm not at a high altitude, but love her brownies. Hope you can get them to work.
Had a reaction to wheat, oats, rye, and barley in a lab test done by a homeopathic doctor in 1997. Have been mostly gluten-free since then. Also highly allergic to MSG.
