Vegan Chocolate Brownies

19 April 2013

I am always looking for recipes which are egg free as my MIL is vegetarian plus she doesn't eat eggs which can prove to be a challenge at times but I love a challenge.  I was baking the other evening - I decided to make brownies - and went to fetch the eggs when I realised we didn't have any.  Don't you hate that?

I couldn't be bothered to get in the car and drive to the shops so I did a quick google search for egg-free brownies and came across this lovely recipe.  And would you beleive - there is no butter needed either? I was sceptical but carried on nonetheless and I was amazed at how delicious they are. I didn't sift the flour or sugar - literally - it took no more than 5 minutes to mix this together and put it in the oven.

My only advice - eat these once cooled and even better - once they have been refigerated otherwise they are quite gooey.

♥ You will need

250g flour
350g brown sugar
65g cocoa
1 tspn baking powder
1 tspn salt
250ml water
250ml vegetable oil
1 tspn vanilla extract

♥ Preparation

Heat the oven to 180 degrees.
In a bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, cocoa powder and salt.
Pour in the water, oil and vanilla extract.
Spread evenly into a square baking tin and cook for 25 - 30 minutes.
If the mixture is till wobbly, cook further until the top is no longer shiny.

If you try it, let me know what you think.

Happy Baking! x
