I came up with this recipe when my niece called and asked how to make brownies without eggs. Since she wouldn’t have access to egg replacer I asked her which recipe she was using and told her what to change. She was using my mother’s recipe which calls for 2 eggs. I told her to increase the flour and add extra baking powder as well as take out 2 tbsp of butter and add in 2 tbsp of canola oil instead. Since she had plain yogurt in the fridge I told her to add in 1/4 cup for each egg.
This recipe makes a cake-like brownie as opposed to a chewy brownie.
Here is the new recipe:
- 6 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 1 cup white sugar
Then add in:
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup cocoa mixed with 3/4 cup hot water
Mix well and then add the dry ingredients:
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
Mix until lumps are gone. Pour into a greased and floured 8 by 8 pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup chocolate chips. (You can lightly flour the choc chips to help prevent them from sinking.)
Bake 350 degrees F for approximately 30 minutes
My son and I decided we should make them to test out the recipe! They are delicious!
