“Hey good lookin’….
…What ‘cha got cookin?”
“Hello. My name is Brandy……. and I’m a chocoholic. ”
My brownie recipe need tweaking now that I’m dairy free (nursing dairy sensitive babe). I NEED chocolate. And for the present, my chocolate fix is limited to Junior Mints (that I admittedly love) and Ghirardelli’s semi sweet chocolate chips (yummmmm). But sometimes a girl just wants to bake! Needs to bake! Here’s what I’ve come up with if you ever find yourself in need of a dairy free brownie… or in need of a seriously fudgy brownie. And we like ‘em fudgy around here…as in “will not come out of the pan in one piece fudgy”. Is fudgy a real word? Because it’s sounding a little weird at this point….. anyway… on to the recipe
Dairy Free Fudge Brownies
- 3/4 cup cocoa
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2/3 cup oil (your choice canola or veg.) divided into 2 different 1/3 amounts
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 & 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Whisk cocoa and baking soda together in large mixing bowl to remove any lumps. Add in 1/3 cup oil and mix until smooth. Next add the 1/2 cup boiling water and stir until well mixed and thickened. Now add 2 cups sugar, 2 slightly beaten eggs and 1/3 cup oil. Stir. Add flour, vanilla and salt. Stir until JUST mixed. (don’t beat the heck out of it!). Now poor into a greased 9×13 in pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 min.
Try to allow it too cool for an hour or so before cutting. Although we rarely do if I’m being honest. Now cut and enjoy!
And now for a totally unrelated brownie note… this weekend I found green tomatoes at the grocery store. So last night I whipped up a batch of Fried Green Tomatoes…. YUM! I also tried out this recipe that I read about over at By Sun and Candlelight. We ate it sans bread however. It really was good!
