Donna Hay Signature Home-Bake Mixes - Review & GIVEAWAY

I was recently approached to review the Donna Hay - Molten Chocolate Chunk Brownie. How could I say no?

I'm a huge fan of Donna Hay's recipes and of her fabulous style... and my kids are fans of chocolate and baking. It was a win-win situation.

The package arrived with all of the Donna Hay mixes. It was hard to decide what to make, but in the end the Molten Chocolate Chunk Brownie's won.


My little man was very helpful in the kitchen and did most of the mixing. Here's Sammy in action:


After about 40 minutes in the oven, this tray of deliciousness was our reward.


Seriously delicious and highly, HIGHLY recommended. If you have the opportunity, pick up a packet to make at home. You won't be disappointed.



Donna Hay has partnered with Goodman Fielder to develop a range of home-bake mixes. They are an indulgent selection of grown up baking mixes that taste as good as baking from scratch.

With pre-measured quality ingredients and step-by-step instructions, it's just so simple! The range consists of an exciting assortment of Donna Hay signature home-bake mixes.

There are four mixes available:

  9. I have to say that, being a sucker for a good brownie mix, I would have to make the Molten Chocolate Chunk Brownie. I am almost tempted to go down to the store tomorrow morning just to get a box, lol!

  10. I'd love to try the almond macarons with chocolate filling, not only because they sound delicious, but because I've tried to make macarons from scratch twice now and have given up because both my attempts turned out to be disasters! Hopefully, this would prove to be a yummy, quick alternative to making the macarons myself!

    The Almond Macaron sounds particularly delicious and looks just like the sort of thing to have with a latte or a hot chocolate topped with a melting marshmallow.
