Soooooo good - tastes just like a brownie should. Even the most experienced dessert eaters wouldn't guess they are vegan. Recipe from Vancouver magazine.
- 1 1⁄2 cups unbleached flour
- 1⁄2 cup cocoa
- 1 1⁄2 cups brown sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup brewed coffee
- 3⁄4 cup soymilk
- 1⁄3 cup vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, roasted and chopped (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips or 1⁄2 cup carob chips
Glaze for extra decadance
- 7 ounces dark Belgian chocolate (optional)
- 5 ounces margarine (optional)
- Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, combine the coffee, soy milk, and oil.
- Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix; then stir in the nuts and chocolate chips.
- Pour batter (it will be quite liquidy) into a greased 9x9" pan and bake at 325º for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- (Note- for a smaller pan, the baking time could be substantially longer- a 7x10 pan took about 40 minutes).
- For glaze- melt the chocolate and margarine and whisk, then drizzle over brownies.
- (Note- this is a lot of glaze- an ounce of chocolate and a tablespoon of margarine makes a nice amount).
I made this in an 8X8 inch glass oven dish and it barely fit. It turned out more like chocolate cake than chocolate brownies. I am not complaining because it was excellent. Very moist and decadent. It reminded me of those premixed boxed cakes by DuncanHines or something. YUM! I highly recommend this recipe to anyone, vegan or not. Thanks for posting it.
I generally hesitate to disagree when I see this many great reviews, but in this case I followed the recipe exactly and even used a good quality chocolate and coffee. This is a solid recipe for something, but I have to disagree with Vancouver Magazine and say it's not brownies! Unlike many reviewers, I don't think this makes 'cakey brownies', I just think it makes cake, and not even a particularly moist cake. I don't think the words "rich", "fudgy", or "brownie" apply. Works well for cake or cupcakes, though!
Cocoa is in the list of ingredients but never mentioned in the recipe instructions. Sorry to use the review but couldn't find anywhere to ask a question!
