Vegan Chocolate Brownie Cake Recipe...

My friend made me this cookbook years ago...

Inside is this magical recipe for vegan chocolate brownies.  They're really simple to make, and have the taste and texture of brownies or chocolate muffins, rich, a bit sticky and very chocolaty.  

I've written it out incase you can't see it clearly ...

Ingredients - 2 cups plain flour, 1 cup sugar, 2/3 cup cocoa powder, 1 cup of oil/margarine (melted marg. makes for a more gooey mix and I often add less oil), 1 heaped tsp baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla extract, pinch salt.

Instructions - Pre-heat the oven to medium/low, mix together all the dry ingredients, add the oil or melted margarine and other wet ingredients and mix very well, add water to mix if you feel it's too dry, put ingredients into a greased and lined baking tin.  Cook on medium low for between 20-30 minutes, or until the top is not shiny.

 I added vegan buttercream icing (margarine and icing sugar and vanilla extract mixed together), sprinkles and edible glitter.  The dinosaur candles turned it into a birthday vegan chocolate brownie cake!


  1. this looks so good! i'll have to try it. i love your recipe book too.x

    1. Thanks Sian, that recipe book is very precious!

  2. What a lovely gift from your friend. Very thoughtful, it will be a precious book on you book shelf - forever Sooz. I miss my best friend, she lives in America and I haven't seen her since 2000, but we stay in touch our way, writing now and again, then not being in touch for months. The brownies look lovely by the way.

    1. My best friend lives in Brazil, it is sad to be away from her, especially as we grew up a street away from each other, we have started having a monthly skype date, which is lovely, as we're both too disorganised to stay in touch properly unless we set a date in advance! 13 years is a long time to have not seen your friend, that must be hard.


Thanks for visiting!
