Vegan chocolate brownies

Still haven't finished posting everything I made for my birthday party back in April... as I mentioned previously, I wanted to make sure there were some vegan options at my birthday party. I wanted something quick and easy and thought you can't go wrong with chocolate brownies (though my boyfriend would disagree!)

Once again I turned to the internet and came across this recipe for vegan chocolate brownies. They were described as "very gooey" in the recipe, which always bodes well in my opinion - I'd rather my brownies were undercooked than overcooked!

As with most brownie recipes, you generally bung everything into a bowl and stir. Perfect! So I mixed the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder.


 

Pour in water, vegetable oil and vanilla. In fact this isn't much different to the vegan cupcake recipe I used! (That's my excuse for using the same photo below on both blog posts... I honestly can't tell which of the two recipes it was!) 

I might be from this recipe... I might be from the cupcakes. 


Pour into a loose-bottomed square pan and bake.


Cut into chunks and you're done!


 I thought these brownies turned out really well - quite gooey as the recipe suggested and with a lovely flavour. I'd make these again whether they were for a vegan or not!

June update:The letter for this month's Alphabakes is V and since this post isn't too old (and we do accept existing posts) I am entering it in this month's challenge.

    1. If you click on the link where I said he disagreed, you'll find it goes to my post on bacon brownies - which he hated and I have to say I didn't think were particularly nice! So maybe he has a point!

  4. Again, I'm sure I commented on these previously. Possibly I imagined doing so, having slipped into a happy diabetic coma having eaten most of these... Delicious, moreish, positively lethal.
