Eggless Brownies


I don't fuss about calories and such when I come across a good brownie. I have been in love with brownies since the first time I ate them 14 years ago and don't mind eating a whole piece when offered. My kids too love it and so thought of trying them this marathon when I am posting under "Eggless / Vegan Baking" theme. My son has been raving about the awesome brownies his friend's mom makes but since I have to yet get her recipe, I thought of trying them from here in the meantime since they were eggless.

I don't own a brownie pan and so I increased the quantity of the ingredients by 50% more and baked in a loaf pan and got chunky brownies. After trying them, we felt that the brownies need to be more moist though it is hard to figure it out from the images. I skipped the jam and not sure whether it has to do anything with the final outcome. The recipe needs a little tweaking to suit our tatsebuds, if I try it the next time.

Ingredients:
1 & 1/4 cups all purpose flour / maida
1/3 cup cocoa powder (I used Hershey's brand.)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 Tbsp coarsely chopped walnuts
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter (at room temperature)
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence

Method:
* Preheat the oven to 375 deg F / 190 deg C.
* Sieve together flour, cocoa and baking powder.
* Cream butter and sugar in a bowl. Add milk, yogurt, vanilla essence to the sugar-butter mixture and mix well. Then add the sieved dry ingredients and half of the walnut pieces and mix well.
* Grease and dust a brownie pan with flour. Add the batter to it and sprinkle the remaining walnuts on the top.
* Bake until a toothpick inserted at the centre inserted comes out clean or for about 35 - 40 minutes.
* Cool and cut into squares.
