Melty Chocolate Brownies

Finally eh, a dessert recipe! I usually love making desserts, and I guess if I wasn’t posting every day, this blog would probably be completely sweet. But when it’s just me and my husband, well, making a cake every single day would be a bit much. Today though it is time for some sweets…and some wonderful ones at that. This is my favourite ever brownie recipe. It doesn’t use any egg replacer, which I love, because that isn’t cheap, it’s a one bowl mix, and it’s so quick and easy to whip up.

I adapted the recipe from this one – I found it a few years ago when I was searching for “egg and dairy free brownies” and decided to give it a go. It worked wonderfully. Over the years I have tweaked the recipe a bit and found my perfect mix. I made some for a village fete a few years ago and they sold out within minutes!

And I’m not lying when I say it is so simple to make.

You just mix the dry ingredients in a bowl:

Then mix in the wet ones, and the chocolate chips:

Pour into a lined baking tin, bake for 20-25 minutes…and there you have it:

one big giant brownie…

Leave it to cool for 20 minutes or so (as long as you can stand!) and cut into 16 large pieces:

And there you have it, lovely gooey chocolate brownies!
