Ingredients

1 package devil's food cake mix with pudding included
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional

Instructions

In large bowl, combine the egg, water and pecans, if desired. Add the cake mix and stir well. If it needs more water, add a teaspoonful at a time, but don't add too much because the batter should be thick. Do not overmix. Pour batter into a greased 9x13-inch pan. Be sure to smooth the top evenly. Bake at 350 degrees. For chewy brownies, bake 20 to 25 minutes. If you like drier brownies, bake a few minutes longer.
