Dark and Rich Brownies

Now I’m the kind who can eat a chunk when everyone around can only manage a slither, when everyone says ‘oh, they’re very rich’, I’m thinking ‘huh?’ beside a mouthful of sugary yumminess. However, even I struggled to get through my chunk of these brownies; in fact I had to do it in two sittings. You will easily serve 18 with these, instead of my 9! They are so good, so decadent; they’re especially deserved on one of our due bitter cold evenings.

Ingredients:

  • About 3/4 cup/95g plain/all purpose flour
  • 1 cup/200g caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup/85g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup packed/100g soft light or dark sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons vegan margarine, melted
  • 2 egg replacements
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 350°f/180°c and grease and line the base of an 8 inch square tin, or similar (but remember to adjust baking times accordingly).
  • Combine flour,sugars,cocoa and baking powder in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk (or sift together if you prefer). Combine the butter, eggs, and vanilla and add to the flour mixture; stir to combine.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs clinging but not liquid batter. Cool in pan on a wire rack, before cutting into squares to serve.
