This is a great food gift for a special occasion - brownie ingredients layered in a jar like sand art.
To DECOY (and all): 5/8 cup is 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. Had to figure that one out myself! - 21 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
If this is a gift, use a poem for the baking instructions and tape it to the jar. Here’s a little Christmas treat Let’s begin, start with some heat 350 degrees to be exact Grease a pan, 9 inches square, 2 inches flat Find a bowl, and pour the jar out Have some fun and mix it all about Add 1 tsp. vanilla, 2/3 cup oil Beat in 3 eggs, no need to toil Pour in the pan, get ready to wait 25-30 minutes or until baked - 03 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Best brownies ever! is the regular reply I get with this recipe. I also changed the recipe to 1/3 cup oil, and found someone's calculation of 5/8cup = 1/2cup + 2Tbsp very helpful. This has become a regular on my gift giving list. - 12 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
