Ten Minute Brownies

Ten Minute Brownies

From the first vegan cookbook I owned; the Student’s Go Vegan Cookbook by Carole Raymond. I hadn’t looked at it for a while, but I picked it up again when I was looking for something easy to make and the ‘ten minute’ part of the recipe’s title caught my eye.

Not that I could make the brownies in ten minutes – apart from the fact that they take 25 minutes to bake, I would only be able to make them that quickly if I had all the ingredients ready. That wasn’t the case, as I had to make the applesauce from scratch and spent some extra time crushing walnuts and measuring and melting the chocolate.

Nonetheless, this was the second time I made this recipe and I like it a lot. This time, I left out all of the oil and used more applesauce, which still resulted in a delicious brownie. The whole thing did fall apart a bit when I wanted to put it on a plate, but that was probably me being impatient and clumsy.

Anyway, now that I’ve made my first brownies, I’d like to try some other recipes as well. I’ve been wanting to make the Fudgy Brownies from Vive le Vegan ever since I got the book, so maybe those will be next!

  1. Your brownies look rich and delicious… I can’t believe you were able to replace all the oil with applesauce – that’s pretty sweet (in more ways than one, ha)! Now I must add brownies to my ever-growing list of things to make!

  2. Thank you for the comments! Ruby Red Vegan, I was surprised by it working so well, too! They still do have fat in them from the melted chocolate, though, but hey, it’s a dessert ^^
