Brownies from cake mix Devils food variety are amazing. If you’ve never made Nutella brownies out of cake mix let me show you what you’ve been missing!
Have you ever made cake mix brownies?? They’re really easy and just as ooey gooey as if you used a traditional brownie boxed mix but you can really amp it up with lots of other flavors like making Nutella brownies as we did here! Brownies from cake mix Devils food variety is a great base for a chewy brownie with nuts and we added your favorite chocolate spread to the mix to make them really chocolatey. You’ve got to try them!
Ok so we started with this post about how to make brownies out of cake mix but we made strawberry brownies that time.
Ever since then we’ve gone wild with cake mix recipes of all kinds and have even made cake mix donuts for fun too.
This time I thought I’d add some Nutella because it’s such a fun nutty add in on sandwiches and just about anything really and let me tell you they turned out amazing!
They key is to NOT overbake these beauties.
You want to bake them just enough so the edges get golden brown and look like they’re getting somewhat cakey but the middle seems like it still will be underdone, that is when they are perfect!
You’re going to allow them to totally cool in the pan so it will continue to bake a bit while they’re sitting on your cooling rack and solidify a bit more in the middle.
We like our cake mix brownies really ooey gooey but if you like more of a cake like brownie then cook just a wee bit longer and you’ll love them too.
How to make brownies from cake mix
- Devil’s food cake mix – this is the one I use
- Nutella – like this
- Walnuts – optional but good
Literally that is it to perfection!!
You see how ours are still ooey gooey but not liquid and raw, perfection I tell you.
24 minutes is perfect for us but you can fool around with the timing your first go around and see how “well done” you want them the next time.
I guarantee you won’t regret leaving them a bit underdone.
Of course you can immediately scoop your devils food brownies out of the pan immediately but they will kinda’ fall apart so if you want to be able to cut them into squares like this then wait until they are cool in the pan and then if you use non stick spray they will cut nicely and serve up pretty.
Here’s how easy these Devil’s food cake mix brownies are to make
Try our red velvet brownies with cake mix.

- Mix together your box of cake mix with your eggs and oil.
- Fold in your Nutella and chopped nuts (can omit nuts).
- Spray an 8x8 pan with non stick spray or line with parchment paper.
- Spread batter evenly into pan and put into preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 24 minutes, do NOT overbake...timing depends on altitude and oven. Start at 21 minutes, check, add more min. if necessary until edges are just barely browned and middle is starting to firm up.
- Put on cooling rack and leave in pan until completely cooled before cutting.
