About this recipe: These are very gooey, which is a good thing in my book. However, if you want your brownies a little more solid you'll need to cook them longer than the recommended time. Great for people with egg or dairy allergies. Feel free to add your own additions like hazelnuts, walnuts or sunflower seeds.



Serves: 16 

  • 250g plain flour
  • 350g demerara sugar
  • 65g plain cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 250ml water
  • 250ml vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Made it healthier. Vegan food always seems to have a high oil content which isn't necessary. I halved the amount and used some apple sauce and a pot of soya dark chocolate pudding....I also added some choc chips...the result was great and more vegan friend raved about it! - 17 Sep 2010


I just tried this recipe, but it was way too oily, I should have gone by what the other ladies had said and cut down on the oil, but it is a great recipe any way - 05 Jan 2012


I made this recipe this afternoon and found it easy to make. I even roped my 3yr old nephew into help! I made these especially for him as he has a dairy allergy. I added 200ml of olive oil (didn't have any veg oil) as suggested by other reviewers. I cooked the brownies for 30 mins and they appeared to be cooked. Tested them with a skewer just in case! I sprinkled sugar on the top for a decorative effect. They tasted gooey and very delicious. My nephew loved them and so did the rest of my family. A great recipe indeed. - 18 Feb 2012
