Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 12 by 9 inch pan. Mix the egg, water, and nuts in a large bowl. Add the dry cake mix and stir well, but don't over beat. If the batter needs a little more water, add a teaspoonful at a time. But don't add too much, because the batter should be thick.
Pour into the prepared pan, and be sure to smooth the top evenly. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes for chewy brownies. If you like them a little drier, bake a few minutes longer.
