Yet more chocolate brownies!

Nyom nyom nyom...
I thought I'd found the best chocolate brownie recipe ever. However, I was wrong. My housemate Helene recently baked something even tastier. That was the good news. However, the bad news was that I was ill and couldn't eat any! Fortunately, though, the others saved me the last piece and in the mean time, they did smell amazing. I mean the brownies, rather than my housemates...

  • Preheat the oven to 175°C/Gas Mark 4.5.
  • In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup cocoa powder, 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt.
  • Pour in 1 cup water, 1 cup vegetable oil and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  • Mix until well blended and spread evenly in a pre greased baking ti.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the top is no longer shiny.
  • Let to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
  • Eat!

  1. Wow no flaxeeds, egg replacers or tofu or even real chocolate...I have all those ingredients in my cupboards and am so tempted to make them!!

  2. What type of sugar did you use? x

  3. Helene said she just used the first sugar she found in the cupboard, which was probably caster sugar.
