Eggless Multigrain Brownies

Christmas is round the corner and am sure ovens at most of your homes must be overworking. So thought will share a brownies to celebrate the holidays ahead. I have adapted the recipe from Diana Desserts. I halved the recipe. I have made these brownies quite a number of times. Initially, I used only all purpose flour. Later when I was comfortable baking with wheat flour, I have tried with wheat flour and then using the multigrain atta too. I would rate the one with mutligrain as the best. So here it is.



 

 

 
You need
 

 
  • Multigrain Flour - 1 cup (Pillsburry brand)
  • All purpose flour - 3 tblspn
  • Water - 1/2 cup + 2 tspn
  • Butter - 1/4 cup
  • Cocoa powder - 5 tblspn
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Salt - 1/4 tspn
  • Vanilla essence - 1/2 tspn
  • Baking powder - 1 1/4 tspn

 

 Method

 

 

 
Combine 3 tblspn of all purpose flour with the water to form a smooth paste. Cook till it turns thick. Keep stirring so as not to form any lumps. Keep this aside to cool.

 
 
 



Melt butter in a pan and stir in cocoa. Sift flour and baking powder.  Beat sugar, salt and vanilla essence into the cooked maida mixture. Add butter-cocoa mixture too.

 

Stir the wet mix to the dry ingredients. Batter consistency will be slightly thick, similar to muffins.
 

Grease a 6 x 6 baking tin. Pour the mix and spread even the mix. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 25 minutes.  Cool and cut into squares.
 
 


 
 
 
It might look too much of work like making the paste, melting butter etc. But I assure its worth all the effort especially if you are looking for an eggless brownie.

  4. @Rajani, @Chitra - I haven't tried in MW. But it should work fine. Try in small quantities. Also let the batter be not more than 1 inch in height. Would like to know your feedback if you try in microwave.

  15. @Rama, good to see you here. For the sizzlers, Pour some chocolate sauce on a sizzling tray. Keep slightly warm brownie, topped with vanilla ice cream. Spoon somemore choco sauce over the icecream
