Spice in the Kitchen: Eggless, Gluten-free Fudge Brownies



My friend, Deva, editor of Sabjimata, sent me this recipe for eggless brownies a year or two ago and it has always proven to be a big hit with everyone who has had the pleasure of munching on their chewy goodness. More like a fudge recipe than a brownie one (due to its use of condensed milk), it packs a major chocolate punch.

Since it only calls for 3/4 of a cup of flour (in a 1/2 recipe, using an 8x8 pan), I thought it would be an easy recipe to make a gluten-free conversion. Having had both the flour version, and the gluten-free versions, I think I like this one better! It has a very, very subtle coconut flavor and lacks the grittiness normally associated with gluten-free desserts.

serves 12-24 (depending on the size of the brownie); prep and baking time: 30 minutes

Substitute the 1.5 cups of flour the recipe calls for by using:

I also added:
  • 1 tsp of espresso powder
  • dash of cinnamon

Notes:
  • Use gluten-free vanilla.
  • Use gluten-free chocolate chips.
  • Chocolate chips can be pressed onto the top of the batter (that's already been put into the baking pan) before it's put in the oven.
