       As I have mentioned in this post, I am craving for brownies now and then since the time I tasted them… I badly wanted to try this Yogurt brownie recipe, after I found it in the Library borrowed cook book. It was very simple to try and also liked the fact that it had no egg!
Yogurt brownies,without egg
       I actually tried this recipe twice. Since this was the first experience in making a brownie, the first time I was not sure if the consistency was right,I baked for right time and so on. Also the recipe had a measurement of water that said ‘approx.’ That was not a good sign for a beginner baker like me! So the first time,having the cake batter’s consistency in my mind,I almost doubled the water and you can guess the end result of the brownie. Though it tasted good,I was not at all happy with the texture…
         Then I asked few of my friends who have brownie baking experience and they made me clear with few points. So I was finding opportunity to try again. Then soon I tried it again with less water as mentioned and the tip ‘bake for more time and till the crust becomes crisp’ from Vibaa worked out for this recipe. I baked for more time and waited till the crust was formed well. Now I realized what mistake I did before, I just inserted a tooth pick and when it came out clean I stopped baking even before the mentioned time in the original recipe! That was a big big mistake. I think its all in the game when we try a new venture/recipe !! As sharmi always tell to me, I have to buy smaller baking pans to try more frequently…

Ingredients:

Plain flour/all purpose flour/Maida 1 & 1/4 cup
Choco powder(Hershey’s) 1/3 cup
Chopped walnuts 2 – 3 tblsp
Baking powder 3/4 tsp
Sugar 3/4 cup
Butter(softened) 1/3 cup
Curd 3/4 cup minus 2 tblsp
Vanilla essence 1/2 tsp
Milk 1/4 cup
Mixed fruit Jam 1 & 1/2 tblsp
Yogurt brownie,no egg

Method:

  1. Pre heat the oven to 190 o C.
  2. Sieve the Choco powder with flour and baking powder twice,to ensure even mixing.
    Sieve
  3. Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy.
    Beat
  4. Add curd,jam,milk and essence and beat well until everything gets mixed well.
    curd jam
  5. Add the sieved flour+choco+baking powder and the chopped walnuts.
    Flour
  6. Mix until everything gets mixed well.The batter will be thick.
    Mix well
  7. Grease a square baking tray,dust it with four and pour the batter into it.
    Pour in tray
  8. Bake it for at least 35 – 40 minutes or until the top crusts forms well.
    Baked
  9. Cool it for 5 mins and trim the edges,cut to desired shape and enjoy one when it is warm still !!

Yogurt brownies
Sending this to Divya’s on going brownie event,in her space. Me too waiting for the event round up to hop on the brownie collections!!
Notes:
  • I used salted butter in this recipe. So if you are using unsalted,you have to add a pinch of salt in the batter.
  • I just loved the tanginess in the recipe,very very mild though,the yogurt and mixed fruit jam is the best I love in the recipe.

  69. Hi Raks,
    Thanks for this wonderful recipe. I followed it to T and it came out really well. It got done in about 32 mins in my oven and also, it did rise a bit, but I think it probably settled down while cooling to give that soft texture in the middle. Thanks a lot for these wonderful eggless recipes!

    ReplyDelete

  87. Hi! So I tried this yesterday.. Everything was ok except that it was crumbly.. When i cut it , it was crumbly..
    I followed everything to the t except for the time.. I took it out when the toothpick inserted came out clean.. But it took only about 20 minutes! So can you help me?
    Also I used unsalted butter and didnt add that pinch of salt..

    1. Hi, since this is a brownie, you need to bake more time as you need a crusty top. So it could be the time factor.
