Eggless Brownies

Happy New Year friends!

And to start off the New Year, here's something chocolaty, decadent, satisfying - Brownies. And I have to confess - I am a convert to egg-less. After years of believing that only with-egg desserts are moist and flavorful, this brownie is all that I want a brownie to be. Also the texture of the brownie is a cake-like. If you like fudge-like brownies - keep coming back to the blog. So here's the recipe without any more writing...

Ingredients:

1 cup all purpose flour (maida)
200 grams Amul mithai mate or 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
100 gms melted Amul butter or 1/2 cup refined vegetable oil + pinch of salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup yogurt + milk equal portions
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
200 gms melted chocolate (dark or milk)
1 tbsp cocoa
1 cup walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F or 180 C.

Take a large bowl and mix the wet ingredients - the yogurt / milk mixture, oil, condensed milk, sugar and melted chocolate. If you are adding walnuts, in another bowl, take a tablespoon of flour and add the walnuts to it. Coat the walnuts evenly. Keep aside. Then mix the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, couple of tablespoons at a time. When all the ingredients are incorporated, beat for about 2 minutes with a hand mixer. Take the floured walnuts and fold into the batter.

Take a 8x8 inch metal or glass cake pan. Line the bottom and sides with foil. This lets you pull out the brownies out of the pan easily and also it's easier cutting and clean up. Pour in the batter and level. Bake for 20 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center to check doneness. The toothpick should come out clean, if it comes out with wet batter bake an additional few minutes.

Cool the brownies. Cut into squares and enjoy!

Serving suggestions:

Brownie with icecream - warm the brownie and add a scoop of vanilla icecream on top. Drizzle some chocolate and caramel sauce on top
Brownie sundae - crumble some brownie pieces into a sundae glass. Top with 2 scoops of icecream of your choice. Add hot fudge and nuts on top.
Brownie trifle - Layer the bottom of a trifle bowl with brownie pieces. Next layer chocolate pudding, followed by whippped cream. Repeat for one more layer. Sprinkle shaved chocolate on top

bookmarked, would love to make eggless brownies as I do use egg in baking, but would love not to as I have to call my husband to help me to break the eggs for me as I hate the smell, so, this is perfect for me :)
