No Pudge Brownie Clone

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Anka

This recipe comes the closest to the ones that are sold in the stores. Do not substitute Splenda or other sweetner, the sugar in the recipe carmelizes as the brownies bake, making them more sticky (when I used Splenda, they felt like rubber. On the box vital wheat gluten also appears, I learned that it helps the brownies rise as the batter is rich in sugar. I figure about 1/2-1 teaspoon is enough * I didn't have yogurt at hand but I had some milk and Jello Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Chocolate Pudding. I made the pudding according to recipe on the box and substituted it cup for cup (I omitted the baking soda because the soda is there to offset the acidity in yogurt, no yogurt= no need for soda). The brownies came out even better!

Very much like the original. And a much cheaper price. Plus I have been wanting to experiment with No Pudge but the price put me off. Mixed up well. Baked very nicely. Rich Dark Chocolate taste. made a batch with Soy Yogurt vanilla flavored also and it turned out very well so it works with that yogurt also for those who must avoid milk. However on this update.. yeah I ignored what the chef said and tried the Splenda because the diabetic was nagging for some. It failed totally. Not only did I have rubber, I had flat rubber. IF the chef says no, don't ignore them. they know what they are talking about. They turn out perfect with the sugar.
