Brownies are one of my all-time favorite treats, and the combination of the brownie and the apricot jam reminds me of a Sacher torte.

  • Mix oil, water, and eggs together in a bowl. Stir in brownie mix until just moistened. Spread 2/3 of the batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.

  • While brownies are baking, warm apricot jam in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.

  • Remove brownies from the oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Spread warm jam over the entire surface. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining brownie batter over the surface of the jam.

  • Return to the oven and continue to bake until edges are dry but brownies still look slightly underdone, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Cook's Note:

Bake brownies according to individual package instructions.

No additions -yes...may add cherries or other flavors! ****NOTE***** The original brownie was invented for the 1893 Chicago worlds fair (along with MANY other firsts like cracker jacks, squashed pennies, wriggle juicy fruit gum, pabst blue ribbon beer, aunt jemima pancake mix, 1st american chocolate bars, 1st all electric kitchen including first dishwasher, moving walkway, Ferris wheel, Vienna sausages, cream of wheat & Quaker Oats, shredded wheat, printer for Braille books, aerosol spray!) by the Palmer House chef for Mrs Bertha Palmer as an easy hand-held dessert in ladies box lunches .... and it was topped with apricot jam! (Many people make that recipe & serve very cold or frozen) Read More

I recommend using dark chocolate brownie mix--with milk chocolate brownie mix it's really too sweet. Also, for a small household, try dividing the recipe in half. Otherwise you have way more than you need! Read More
