Triple Chocolate and Coffee Brownie - Father's Day Special - Eggless, Butterless Recipe

Father's day is round the corner and if you are looking for a recipe to work with your little one to make for his/her dad this is the recipe for you. The kids and the dad will love you for this. It is very simple to make. Just mix all the ingredients together, pour into a pan, Bake! How simple can it get... My son and I had a lot of fun making it and eating with his dad and my dad! Fun Family Day!

Just cause it is simple does not mean it is not tasty. Its just the opposite. It is 'Triple Chocolate' guys. Did you not read the title!!! Cocoa, White Chocolate and Milk Chocolate. Yumm! And why coffee? Well, coffee just brings out the best in chocolate. The slight bitter taste and the sweetness of chocolate make an awesome combo.

Brownies are kind of a middle ground between cakes and cookies, usually baked in square pans and cut into smaller squares (usually 16 of them). It tastes awesome just as is. You can pair it with a glass of cold milk when serving for kids. Or if you feel indulgent, warm brownies with a scoop of Vanilla Ice cream makes a perfect dessert! Don't you agree?

I had bookmarked a few recipes. And I wanted to try them all, they are all sooo good. But this one caught my eye cause it looked so chocolaty and dark and good. My friends Kavitha and Anu tried this and claimed this to be the best Brownie recipe ever. Now I had to try. I had been lately baking with eggs (recipes coming along, do wait). Which means I cannot enjoy a lot of them (intollerance, won't bother you with details). So I loved the fact that 'The Best Brownie Ever' was eggless! So here you go...

(I used measurements in gms, but have given measurements in cups as well for your convenience)

Dry Ingredients
All Purpose Flour 130 gms (1 cup)
Cocoa Powder 23 gms (1/4 cup)
Castor Sugar 90 gms (1/3 c + 2 tbsp)
Baking Powder 1 tsp
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
White Chocolate 90 gms (chopped)
Milk (or Dark) Chocolate 90 gms (chopped)

Wet Ingredients
Warm Milk 1/3 cup + 2 tsp of coffee (Soy Milk for Vegan)
Yogurt 1/2 cup (Soy Yoghurt for Vegan)
Oil 1/4 cup
Vanilla Extract 1 tsp

Method of Preparation

1. Brush a 8 * 8 square baking pan with a little oil and line it with Parchment Paper (such that a bit of paper hangs out on two sides of the pan). This will help in easily taking the brownie out. Dust it with some flour.

2. Preheat oven to 150C.

3. Take 2 tsp of flour from the 1 cup of flour and dust the chocolates with it. This will prevent the chocolates from sinking to the bottom.

4. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt) other than chocolate.

5. In another bowl, mix the milk + coffee, yogurt, oil and vanilla.

6. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Give it a mix till combined well.

7. Pour half the batter to the prepared pan. Spread it gently with a spatula.

8. Add the white chocolates all over the top evenly.

9. Mix the milk (or dark) chocolate with the rest of the batter.

10. Pour the batter into the pan. Give the pan a tap on the counter to let any air bubbles escape.

11. Transfer to the over and bake for 30-40 min till a  toothpick comes out clean. I baked for 37 min.

(When I first checked at 30 min, the pick came out all gooy and I was a little worried. But then I realized that I had hit a chocolate. The other sections were quite dry. So do check at a couple of spots).

12. Take out of the oven and leave it in the pan for an hour. Well, this is the toughest part when baking with kids! :-)

13. Once cooled, take out of the pan using the parchment paper. Cut into 16 squares.

Eat away!!!
