This month's theme for Gayathri's Baking Eggless Challenge was to make these Chocolate Fudge Brownies. I missed a few challenged before Gayathri had decided to take a break from this group.Now I am so happy that this lovely group is up and running.
The original recipe is from Joy the Baker. That recipe had 3 large eggs! For this recipe I used yogurt and egg replacer.
I did not bake this until yesterday. I forgot to check the ingredients needed and just started collecting ingredients and began to line them on the table. That is when I found I was short on a couple of ingredients!
I added only a handful of almond and some peanut butter chips that Priya Srinivas had sent across for the BM #50 meet.I was also short of chocolate chips so made some adjustments and proceeded to bake it.
The big blunder that I did was using a small pan. The recipe requires a 8 x 8 pan and I used a smaller one. The extra batter went into another small loaf liner. But soon the brownie rose and was on the verge of overflowing. I made a collar using baking sheets and fit them into the pan and got it baked.
Whatever mistakes I made were brushed aside by the fact that the brownies turned out so good and the kids loved them so much.
Adapted from - Joy the Baker
Use a - 8"x 8" pan
All purpose flour - 1 1/4 cups
Butter- 110 grams
Chocolate chips-1/2 cup
Yogurt- 1/2 cup
Egg replacer- 1 tablespoon mixed in 3 tablespoons of water
Sugar, powdered- 3/4 cup
Cocoa powder- 3 tablespoons
Salt- 1/2 teaspoon
Baking soda- 1/2 teaspoon
Vanilla essence- 1 teaspoon
Almonds- a handful chopped
Peanut butter chips- a handful
Take the chocochips and butter in a vessel and melt it using a double boiler method [ keep it over a vessel of boiling water]/ microwave the mixture till it melts.Whisk well and keep aside.
Add sugar and mix. Add the egg replacer ,yogurt,vanilla essence.
Add the sifted flour and mix to combine. Transfer to a pan lined with baking paper. Sprinkle nuts and peanut butter chips.
Bake in a pre heated oven @ 180 degree C for40 minutes or till done.I bakes the smaller one for 25 minutes. A
skewer inserted in the center will not come clean but will have a little
batter in it. Do not be tempted to over bake it.Remove from oven and let it cool with the baking sheet on a wire rack.
Cut into squares after it has cooled down.
