Light Magic Brownie Recipe

This recipe uses cake mix instead of brownie mix, which makes it a little lighter. Perfect for those who don’t want “fudge-like” brownies but still want something simple to make! I personally prefer a lighter brownie to a fudge-like brownie, and I’ve been happy with this pot brownie recipe for that purpose!


  • 1 pkg. Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 1 cup weed butter (8 oz, or 2 sticks worth)
  • 3/4 cup Evaporated Milk
  • (optional) 1/2 cup chopped nuts and/or chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Melt cannabutter in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add cake mix, evaporated milk, nuts/chocolate (optional), and combine it into a thick batter.
  4. Spread batter into an ungreased 13″ x 9″ baking pan. It will be pretty thin but should fill the whole pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes until edges start pulling away from the sides and the center is set.
  5. Cool in a pan on a wire rack and cut into 15 squares

Dosing Info

If you’re unsure of your tolerance to cannabis edibles, only eat 1/2 or 1/4 of a brownie until you’ve better tested your tolerance.

It can take 2-3 hours for a brownie (or any cannabis edible) to set in, especially on a full stomach, so eating more edibles in that period is not recommended. You can always eat more edibles but can’t take them back!

Note: The best weed brownies start with high-quality cannabutter! If your cannabutter isn’t great to start, your brownies won’t be as good as they could be. Learn how to make the best weed butter, so you know the exact potency you’re working with!

Can you smell weed brownies?

Yes, you can smell weed brownies. However, when prepared correctly, you should not be able to smell weed brownies after they have been baked. Yes, drug-sniffing dogs and those with highly sensitive senses of smell will still be able to pick up on an ‘odd’ odor.

Making weed brownies is not only fun but they should be delicious too! 🙂
