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.

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Pour in water, vegetable oil and vanilla; mix until well blended. Spread evenly in a 23x33cm (9x13 in) baking tin.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is no longer shiny. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares.

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 chocolatey....my vegan friend raved about it! - 17 Sep 2010
Yum! These were really good. My partner still had no idea these were vegan either They took longer to cook than recipe says - so I finished them off in the microwave so the outside didn't crisp up too much.
Next time I might reduce the oil a little - they are delicious as they are but I think I could get away with using less oil. - 12 Feb 2012
