Egg-less Brownies

"For my kids school fair I volunteered to do egg-less brownies, base was my tried and tested egg-less chocolate cake recipe and went thru some 20+ brownie recipes ( egg-less, vegan etc..)  and finally wound up with an absolutely yummy and easy egg-less brownie recipe. Baked some 3 kgs of it, enjoyed by all, hope you do so too..."


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups castor sugar
  • 2/3 cups cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda (use baking powder if you do not have soda)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp vinegar 
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Method:

  1. Pre heat oven at 170 degrees centigrade
  2. Take a baking tin of 9" x 13" or similar size and oil the tin well.
  3. Take 1 tbsp of flour and sprinkle it over the oiled tin making sure it is well covered, remove any excess flour by inverting tin
  4. Warm milk, add the vinegar and let the mixture curdle  
  5. Mix all dry ingredients - flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda,salt and baking powder in a bowl
  6. Add the wet ingredients- curdled milk,oil and vanilla essence to the flour mixture
  7. Beat with a whisk, by hand, till just mixed (mixture will be thick and sticky, do not over beat)
  8. Pour into the oiled tin and if wanted add nuts ( coated in flour), pushing them in the batter slightly
  9. Bake in pre-heated oven for 25 minutes or till done, and toothpick inserted in centre, comes out slightly sticky, with a few crumbs stuck to it ( Do not over bake, else it will be dry like a cake and not fudgy like a brownie)

Note :


  • This recipe, makes approximately 1 kg, of 12 pieces of 3" x 3" brownies
  • If you want to add nuts, be sure to coat them with flour, else they will sink to the bottom.
  • Any other additions, like chocolate chips etc., all to be coated in flour before mixing in batter or decorating on top
