Jamie Oliver's vegan brownies

May 18, 2019

When I put the call out for everyone’s favourite
vegan brownie
recipes, a helpful person in a facebook group
pointed me to Jamie Oliver’s recipe. I liked that it was based on
the kinds of ingredients I always have at home, and that the batter
included both cocoa and melted dark chocolate for a deep chocolate
flavour. There’s some extra chocolate chips and pecans folded in at
the end, too. Though I’d normally be very keen on the nuts, I
thought it’d be fairer to skip them as I compare recipes.
As you can see in the photo above, this brownie is certainly
fudgy rather than cakey! But without anything to replace the eggs
that form such a key part of non-vegan brownies, the texture was a
bit… paste-y. I could definitely see myself making these again on
a raid-the-pantry whim, but they weren’t my One True Brownie.

Jamie Oliver’s vegan brownies
(slightly adapted from a recipe on
his website
)

200g dark chocolate chips
170g self-raising flour
3 teaspoons cocoa
180g caster sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup soy milk
1/3 cup sunflower oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat an oven to 180°C. Line a 20 cm square baking tray
with paper and lightly spray it with oil.
Melt 150g of the chocolate by your preferred method (I use a
double boiler-type set-up), and set it aside to cool
slightly.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour and cocoa. Stir in
the sugar and salt. Stir in the soy milk, oil, vanilla and melted
chocolate until everything is well combined. Fold through the
remaining chocolate.
Pour the brownie batter into the baking tray and smooth over
the top. Bake the brownie for 20-25 minutes until the edges are
cooked but the centre is still wobbly.
