Eggless Brownie

Chocolate Brownie

 Brownie is a sumptuous dessert that is sinful! Why am I calling it sinful? That’s because it has butter, it has all-purpose flour, it has sugar. But isn’t it okay to indulge once in a while? For the ones who are feeling guilty to have it, I may mention that it also brings with it the goodness and huge benefits of walnuts and chocolates.

What Is A Brownie?

A Brownie is a baked dessert that is square in shape and is a cross between a cake and a soft cookie.

The Brownie was first made in Chicago for an event attended by ladies only. It is believed that Brownie was actually a baking disaster wherein the baker presented his not so fluffy chocolate cake in an appetizing way, which eventually became a hit. Whatever the story maybe, but it’s true that Brownie today is an exotic and much-loved dessert.

Brownie is different from a Chocolate cake. You can read the difference between Brownie and Chocolate Cake here.

 

Types Of Brownies

Brownies are classified into three categories, namely, Fudgy, Chewy and Cakey.

Chocolate Brownie

I earlier used to make brownies using eggs but as I have now evolved into eggless baking, I discovered one could make very tasty and yummy brownies as an eggless recipe too. The proof of the pudding is in eating, as they say.

Though I have not tried all the variants of brownies but the one me and my family is obsessed with is Walnut Chocolate brownie. The love for this variant is probably the reason why my family has remained stuck with it most of the time and not moved on to try various variants. Though this Brownie can be consumed with cream or just plain, we like to consume it with scoops of vanilla ice cream. A warm brownie with cold vanilla ice cream scoop – tastes so awesome and quickly vanishes.  The best part is that it is so easy to make.

Don’t be alarmed if brownies turn out differently every time even when you are using the same recipe.

 

Tips for Making Brownies:

Tip: Unlike cake, brownies are not inverted. 

You can even prepare Brownie Mix and keep it in your pantry or gift it to your loved ones. A quick way to prepare brownies.

 

How To Make 

  • The first and foremost step in making a brownie is to prepare the baking tin.  For this, aluminium foil or parchment paper is laid in the baking tin so that it hangs outside the tin or at least is there till the top. This is because once baked. brownies are not inverted. Rather they are lifted by holding the parchment paper or the aluminium foil laid in the tin.
  •  After this, I mix butter, sugar, melted chocolate and curd and beat this really well, starting with butter and sugar and eventually mixing other things. Thereafter, flour and cocoa powder are added. I make Brownies using both melted chocolate as well as cocoa powder. This combination gives perfect results.
  • However, if you don’t have chocolate then increase the quantity of cocoa powder and sugar as well. (See Note 3). 
  • Also, I don’t add vanilla essence, actually don’t feel the need so maybe because of the dark chocolate. But you may add if you want.
  • Lastly, walnuts are added and then the batter is put in the prepared tin for baking.

 

As you can see in the pic, I have sprinkled walnuts only on one half, so that you can have a feel of the crumbly and shiny crust on the plain part.

FAQ’s

Q) I do not have dark chocolate. How can I make this brownie then?

If you do not have dark chocolate, then adjust the quantities as under:     

 

Q) How To Get Shiny Crust In Brownie?

Normally, while baking a cake we don’t beat the batter once the flour has been added but for brownies beat it well. This will give your brownies a chewier texture along with a shiny crust. When you beat the batter, gluten develops which in turn makes the brownie chewy and the crust gets shiny. This is the reason why the cake batter is not beaten whereas the brownie batter is beaten. You can beat with a whisk but better with a hand blender.

Q) Why do my brownies break while cutting? Can I avoid this?

Once the brownies are baked and are cooled slightly, then you need to keep these in the refrigerator as it is in the pan itself. After an hour or so, remove from the refrigerator, take out from the baking pan and then cut these. You will have neat slices then.

Q) This is an eggless recipe, still baking soda is not added. Is it not required?

Yes. This is because brownies are made without any leavening agents. Still, we have added baking powder as this is an eggless version. But no baking soda is used. (Read Tips above)

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Course Dessert

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 Cup 100 gms Melted Butter
  • 1/4 Cup 50 g White Sugar, Granulated (See Note1)
  • 1/4 Cup 50 g Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup 100 gms Dark Chocolate, Melted (See Note 2)
  • 1/2 Cup 120 gms Curd
  • 1 Cup 120 gms All-purpose Flour

  • 1/2 Tsp Salt See Note 3
  • 4 Tbsp 20 gms Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Essence Optional
  • 1/2 Cup Walnuts crushed (Optional)

Instructions
 

  • Take a 5" by 5" square baking dish and line it with parchment paper or aluminium foil. (See Note 4 & 5)
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees for 15 minutes. While the oven is getting ready, you do the following preparations.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder.
  • Heat butter, either in the microwave or on the gas stove. ( See Note 6 )
  • Add granulated sugar in it and beat for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • After that add melted but cooled dark chocolate and again beat for 30 seconds or so. ( See Note 7 )
  • Add Curd and mix it well.
  • Add sifted flour in two or three batches.
  • Now beat everything for roughly 2 minutes. (See Note 8)
  • Mix walnut kernels.
  • Pour the batter into the baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes or till a skewer inserted comes out with some crumbs stuck to it. If the skewer comes out clean then it is overbaked.
  • Take it out of the oven and let it cool slightly.
  • Keep the pan as it is in the refrigerator for an hour or so.
  • Thereafter, lift it as it is with the foil from the baking pan. Do not invert it.
  • Cut pieces.
  • Serve with a smile, Vanilla Ice cream optional.

Notes

  1. Take normal granulated sugar, don't powder it.
  2. Skip salt, if using salted butter.
  3. Lining the tin with foil/parchment paper is very important, otherwise, the brownie may stick to the bottom.
  4. Ideally, Brownie is made in a square tin. In the absence of square tin, go for a rectangular or circular one.
  5. Heat butter so that it melts slightly.
  6. Heat dark chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds or using a double boiler on the gas stove.
  7. Gluten is developed when the batter is beaten, this, in turn, makes brownies chewy.
  8. In case, you feel the batter is too thick, then add a little curd. But keep it on a thicker side only.
  9. Cut the pieces in a sawing motion, otherwise, you will end up getting crumbs only.
  10. You can serve it with whipped cream or chocolate sauce also.
  11. If you are not using dark chocolate, then adjust the quantities as under:
    • 1/2 Cup (100 g) Brown Sugar
    • 1/4 Cup (50 g) White Sugar
    • 6 Tbsp (30 g) Cocoa Powder

    1. You are welcome Chetan…
      I have never made with milk. However, you may try Using milk, but use very little quantity, may be less than 1/4 cup.

  1. Tried these brownies…came out perfect…very well explained…my family loved it.. thank you for the recipe..the recipe is a keeper

  2. For browni recipe u have given option for dark choc.so jus wanna kno.that in browni total measurement will be 3\4 cup sugar n 6tbsp cocoa…or sum more sugar n cocoa

  3. Hi Samira, thanks for the recepie. I tried it and While the brownies were nice and gooey, i felt the taste wasnt upto the mark. I asume i goofed up somewhere. So here is a list of queries:
    Found the taste to be bitter. I used malasyian coco and morde dark compound chocolate.Do i need to use specific brand cocoa powder? Can i increase the quantity of sugar? If yes how much?
    Preheated oven at 200 deg c for 15 mins. Could you confirm What should be the baking tempeature and time?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Manasi, Thanks for liking the recipe.
      As for your queries, I have never used Malaysian cocoa powder so no idea about it.
      I normally use cadbury’s or weikfield cocoa powder.
      You can adjust sugar according to your taste buds.
      Temperature is fine, you may check after 25 minutes or so as all ovens are different.

    1. In Microwave oven, same time as OTG.
      In Microwave High, will take as much time as needed to bake a cake. Approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Keep a check after 5 minutes.

  4. Beating batter after the addition of flour is something new to me. Bookmarked the recipe. I’m curious and will certainly try it to see the effect of beating 🙂

  5. Hi, brownie looks yummy. I have some queries 1) can i use 7.5’×7.5′ baking tray.
    2) is Cadbury is a unsweetened cocoa powder? 3) Could you plz mention the number of pieces the recipe yields.

    1. Hi Jameela, Thanks for liking the recipe.
      Coming to your queries…
      (1) Going by the quantity of ingredients, 7.5″ would be large and you might end up having very thin layer. Go for atleast 6″ dish. Or double the quantity for 7.5″ dish.
      (2) Cadburys cocoa powder is perfectly fine. Yes, it is unsweetened.
      (3) No. of pieces would depend on the size.Frankly, I neither ever counted nor remember. But, going by the mathematical calculations, I think it should give about 16 pieces of 1.25″ each, if baked in 5″ tray.Lesser if bigger.
      Hope that helps.

    1. Hi Neeta… sawing motion means move your knife to and fro like you may be doing for cutting bread slices also. (The way a carpenter mives his saw). This way you minimise the chances of getting crumbled pieces.

  6. Hi mam…. Tried this brownie recipe today…. Came out perfect…. It’s yummy…. Thank you for the eggless brownie recipe….

  7. hi.. tried the brownie recipe today…. taste came out gr8… texture was also good.. crusty from top..but i hav few doubts… the inside wasnt as gooey… it was falling apart n on cutting crumbles were there… where could i have i gone wrong? the batter was quite thick unlike the cake batter, ….how do i get a bit dense brownie with crusty top?

    1. Hi Mansi… glad to have your genuine n positive feedback.
      Dear, first of all, as I mentioned in the post too, it might come out different each time.
      You need to cut when slightly cool, if you cut immediately after taking out of the oven they tend to break.
      Then cut in sawing motion.
      For more gooey you may increase the quantity of dark chocolate like from 100 g to may be 120 g. Also take it out little early, say when you see crumbs on the toothpick. For brownies, toothpick should not come out clean.
      Hope that helps…

  8. Hello mam.. I am Kanchan. I want to try your brownie recipe so before that I have a question. Can I use Ghee in place of butter ? And if yes so would you please mention the quantity as well? As of the current situation, lacking with butter.
    Thank you in advance 😊

    1. Hi Kanchan, i recently used homemade butter in Ragi Brownies and the result was awesome. Ghee should work but can’t be 100% sure. Better to try with half the quantity first.Also,take less ghee, like instead of 100g just take 70 or 80 g. Do share your feedback.
      Happy Baking👍
