Shivani Singh, 16 May 2020

They say that good food is often, very often, simple food. But who says that simple food cannot be decadent and delicious? Honestly, baking is one of the simplest things to do and learn, as long as you get the ingredients right! Plus, baked goods give you an innate satisfaction, that you can't stop yourself from gobbling down a few bites before you let anyone else have a taste. And since, this lockdown is all about learning new things and indulging in guilty pleasures, baking is just one of the many things on our to-do lists.

So, for our latest #SSQuarantineSessions, we have Chef Chhavi from The Cake Company who will guide us through the entire procedure of baking Eggless Chocolate Brownies & Vanilla Mug Cake! 🎂🤤

Eggless Chocolate Brownies Recipe

🍰 Ingredients

  1. 1/3 Cup Sugar (68gms)
  2. 7 Tbsp Water (90 gms)
  3. 1/4 Cup + 1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter (60 gms)
  4. 2/3 Cup Dar Chocolate (100 gms)
  5. 1.5 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  6. 1/2 Cup Flour

  8. 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  9. 1/2 Tsp Coffee Powder
  10. 1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts
  11. Flax Seed Mix (2 Tbsp Powder + 5 Tbsp Water)

🍴 Instructions

  1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees Celsius. 
  2. Oil & Dust a 6-7 inch square tin. 
  3. Mix flax seed powder with water and keep aside. 
  4. In a separate bowl, mix warm water, sugar, coffee powder, and vanilla. 
  5. On a double boiler or microwave, melt butter and chocolate together. 
  6. Add the flaxseed & water mix to the chocolate mix and whisk it together. 
  7. Add cocoa powder and salt to the flour and whisk it gently to aerate. 
  8. Now, mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.  Add chocolate chips to the batter. 
  9. Pour the batter into the dusted pan and top it off with chopped walnuts and more chocolate chips. 
  10. Bake the batter at 180 degree Celsius for 25-20 minutes. To check is the brownies are cooked, insert a toothpick in the middle and see if it comes out clean. If the toothpick comes out clean, then your brownies are done.

Now, while you wait for your brownies to cook in the oven, you can move onto the  Eggless Vanilla Mug Cake, which takes ten minutes to whip and another 2 minutes to cook! By the time your brownies are out, you'll be done with your mug cake as well.
