Eggless Chocolate Brownies

Eggless Brownies

Here I am with a tried and tested eggless Chocolate Brownies recipe, as promised! A whole ten days before Diwali too. When I posted my Fudgy Brownies (The Ooey Gooey ones), lots of friends wanted an eggless recipe. Now these aren’t the fudgy,melty kind, but are pretty darned yum! The husband declared, these were the best Brownies he’s ever had. And I am happy I have something nice to bake for when MIL visits 😀
The lovely recipe is from my dear friend Suchitra Shenoy who blogs at Daawat-E-Suchi. I adjusted the baking powder a wee bit to get a slightly more fudgy texture.

So here goes

120 grams/1 cup Maida (all purpose flour)
2 Tbsp Cocoa powder
½  tsp Baking Powder *
½ tsp Baking Soda
200 ml/half a tin of condensed milk
100 grams grated chocolate
45 grams/3 Tbsp butter
½ cup chopped walnuts**
½ cup chocolate chips ***

Line a 9×9 inch square pan.
In the microwave or over the double boiler, heat the grated chocolate, condensed milk and butter till all is melted. If using the microwave, melt in 30 second spurts and keep stirring in between. Mix well and leave to cool to room temperature.
Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda.
Add flour to the chocolate mixture and mix till incorporated.
Pour into the lined pan and smoothen the top with a spatula.
Cover the top with chocolate chips and walnuts.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 160C for 25-30 minutes till a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out with some crumbs but no wet batter.
Cool completely before cutting into squares.
Serve with a dollop of vanilla ice cream for some added joy 😀
Eggless Brownies prep
* You may add 1 tsp of baking powder for a more cakey texture
** Omit walnuts in case of a nut allergy or replace with a dry nut of choice
*** Increase the chocolate chips to a cup and layer some in between the batter for a chocolaty centre

  1. Hi, I have a question. Where you say whisk flour with other dry ingredients, can I use a manual whisk for it? And how long should it be whisked?

    1. One eggless dessert that worked for me!
      Usually I am so bad at eggless cakes and bakes.
      Do you have a Facebook blog page? I am more regular there: would love to connect there too!

  2. 😀 😀 😀 Is it a good way to shriek my thank you out? I am a good baker, but somehow the brownies I baked were always cakey and not fudgy! You helped me nail id, with very minor tweaks I guess it turned out scandalous! (because everyone was convinced it was store bought 😀 ) Thank you!!

  3. I am having a bit of baking issues. I checked the toothpick and it came out perfect. But once I got the baking pan out, the cake sunk in the middle. Where did I go wrong

    1. Hi Aastha
      Check the oven temperature.
      Make sure the oven is pre-heated for ten mins.
      Do not open the oven door too often.
      Do not move the cake to a cold area immediately after baking.
      These are some possible reasons for sinking.

  4. Hey Garima i am a regular reader of your blog though i tried your recipe for the first time. At first while making this i thought it will not come out good as the batter was really thick. but it came out it was great n just perfect. only thing i want to ask is my brownie was a little hard when i kept it out and i need to micro it for 20 sec before serving may be because of butter in chilly weather, can we do something for this as im planning to take it along with me for a family trip on a hill station.

  5. This is my family’s most favorite brownie recipe. I add some butterscotch as a topping along with chocolate chips. Yum!

  6. Hi Garima
    I have tried the egg version n they came out fab. For these eggless ones can we add oil instead of butter and what quantity?

  7. Hi Garima…!! I loved your blog and photography too…!! Tried your Eggless brownies today…!! Tastes Yummmm but just a lil problem….I felt they were dry, though I haf added 2 tbsp of milk to it…!! Do you think we can increase the amount of fat in this recipe to make it a bit more moist?? Cz usually other fudgy brownies do have more butter…!!
