It's pretty easy to tell because every single lb or 1/2 lb of butter I've bought has markings on the foil indicating 1/4, 1/2, 1 cup, etc. So you just cut it at that line.

oh...that's how our sticks are. They are marked in tablespoons but say how many you'd need to make 1/4, 1/2....But our 1 1b blocks of butter at work do not have anything like that on it.

The next installment of weird brownie pan trials:



(I put too much batter in. 1.5 X recipe would have been right.)

Whatever it is it looks good. Is it peanut butter something or other?

It's my Blonde Brownies (brown sugar brownies) (Blondies, whatever).

I like the pan! It does have more in the way of edges, and if I hadn't put too much batter in, I could have dumped them out all still attached to each other, and people could just tear one off.

I probably could easily modify the recipe to include peanut butter.

Here's the original, single batch recipe:

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar (packed)
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Chocolate chips

Melt butter in pan and mix in brown sugar. Add vanilla, salt, baking powder and flour. Mix well. Add eggs. Make sure batter is well mixed and pour/spoon into pan. Top with chocolate chips if wanted.
Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes. Top should look nicely browned and somewhat crispy when done.


I love this recipe because 99 percent of the time I have all of the ingredients on hand.

Thank you! I love blondies too but I never remember to make them! I'm going to try this. Now to put that pan back on my Christmas list.

And peanut butter would have been good.

I was shopping for a wedding present at Bed Bath & Beyond, and this latest brownie pan threw itself into my arms. Nothing I could do.


I think you could just add some peanut butter and maybe leave out an egg yolk and some butter? Must try.

ARW?

just add the peanut butter, maybe 1/4 cup....or you could add peanut butter chips. If you add peanut butter and not chips, taste the batter. If it taste like pb then you're good to go but if not add a little more. Never cut out ingredients but it's always ok to add things to give it flavor.

Oh cool!

(I'm not a big fan of PB chips but I love PB cookies so I might try adding the PB! )

You can do just about anything to a cookie/cake/brownie recipe to make them your own by adding your favorite things to it. My last job was at a cake shop and we only used 3 recipes but made 14 daily flavors...
