Egg Free Brownies
I have had the hardest time substituting eggs in brownie recipes or mixes. The ones that are meant to be an easy box-mix have failed miserably. The from-scratch recipes have come out better, but still not right. The center sags, the edges way too crispy.. until this recipe! These actually came out with a BROWNIE consistency. Just dense enough, chocolately, and delish. [Original recipe from allrecipes.com and lists Recipe By: Bridget Brooke-meer.]
- 1/3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 more cups all purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 9x13 inch pan. In a heavy saucepan combine the 1/3 cup of flour and water. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thick. Transfer to a mixing bowl and set aside to cool.
- In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Once melted, add the cocoa and mix until smooth; set aside to cool.
- Beat the sugar and vanilla into the cooled flour mixture. Stir in the cocoa mixture until well blended.
- Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, stir into the batter until just blended. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
- Bake 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool before cutting into bars.
