Eggless Brownies

Chitra's Cuisine 3rd Anniversary!

Time flies!! Today marks the 3rd anniversary of my blog Chitra's Cuisine. I really enjoy writing this blog and I would like to thank all my followers and readers. Thanks to all of you for visiting my site. All your feedback and comments mean the whole world to me.
In these three years I have learnt so much about cooking, food photography and made some wonderful friends ! Special thanks to hubby who inspired me into starting this blog and the wonderful home studio!  :) 
I hope you will continue to spread the love, share this blog with your friends and take pleasure in cooking and sharing these recipes with your loved ones.

My recipe this week is one that just makes you melt - Super soft  and moist Eggless Brownies.

All Purpose Flour - 1 cup 
Cocoa Powder - 1/3 cup 
Powdered Sugar* - 3/4 cup + 2 tbspn (measured after powdering the regular sugar)
Baking Soda - 1 tsp 
Salt - a pinch
Oil (Canola or Vegetable) - 1/3 cup 
Buttermilk** - 1 cup
Instant Coffee Powder - 1/2 tsp(optional)
Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
Walnuts - 1/4 cup, chopped (any type of nuts)

*If you are using confectioners' sugar add 1 cup sugar
**If you don't have buttermilk boil 1 cup milk. Add 1 tsp of vinegar and stir it well. Let it cool. 
This mixture(include the whey) acts as a great substitute for buttermilk.

Pre-heat oven to 350F / 180C.
In a bowl beat the buttermilk well. Mix in the oil, vanilla extract. Keep it aside.
In another bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, coffee powder(if using) and salt. Mix the powdered sugar with this and stir well to combine. 
Now add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently fold to combine until there are no more streaks of flour left.
Transfer the batter to a greased 8X8 pan and add chopped walnuts on top.
Bake for 25-30 mins until a skewer inserted into the brownie comes out with crumbs.
Let the baked brownies sit in the pan and cool completely before you cut into squares.
