As I have mentioned in my last 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!
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 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 it's all in the game when we try a new venture/recipe.
|Plain flour/all purpose flour/Maida||1 & ¼ cup|
|Choco powder(Hershey’s)||⅓ cup|
|Chopped walnuts||2 – 3 tblsp|
|Baking powder||¾ tsp|
|Curd||¾ cup minus 2 tblsp|
|Vanilla essence||½ tsp|
|Mixed fruit Jam||1 & ½ tblsp|
- Preheat the oven to 190 o C.
- Sieve the Choco powder with flour and baking powder twice,to ensure even mixing.
- Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy.
- Add curd, jam, milk and essence and beat well until everything gets mixed well.
- Add the sieved flour + choco + baking powder and the chopped walnuts.
- Mix until everything gets mixed well.The batter will be thick.
- Grease a square baking tray,dust it with four and pour the batter into it.
- Bake it for at least 35 – 40 minutes or until the top crusts forms well.
- Cool it for 5 mins and trim the edges,cut to desired shape and enjoy one when it is warm still.
|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.|

looks so yummy..without egg , i cannot believe it.
I'm a big time brownie addict, but coz of the large number of eggs I try to bake less. bUt with a yogurt version looking so good, I know I have got my day to day brownie recipe.
something wrong with this recipe. i tried it out to the letter and they didn't rise at all!! disappointing.
The brownie will never rise. It will be as such only.Anyway sorry for disappointing. Hope the taste was good
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!
It looks awesome to me a must try for me..
will let me you know...
Tried ur lovely recipe the moment I came across it (had evrythng in my kitchen & couldn't resist the temptation!!)....it turned out exactly as picturised....yummy to the T....luv ur blog 2...step by step pictorial makes it all the more easy!...following ur blog

OOOO I made this finally. The only thing I changed was the butter was sub by olive oil. Was it fantastic. I got just one slice was demolished by the time i came home from my 2 hour session at the class. I was pleased let me tell you.

HAd bookmarked the recipe since long n tried it n yess the texture was perfect...but....dont know why de tasted sour...hink it was because of the jam and curd...wat can i replace curd with keeping it an eggless one.....
Can I use Cocoa powder instead of choco powder.
these are baking in my oven right now!
Preethi :) Viji!!!
Hi can i use cocoa powder instead of choco powder? if yes, whats the quantity. need to make it now for a friend's bday so kindly reply.. i tried the choco muffins yester and it has come out yum! u r the best! 🙂
Its cocoa powder only 🙂
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..
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.
ur recipes r wonderful n i wld really lyk to know if u hav recipes on lasagna?
Thanx for d Luvly recepe .i made it today but it was like sticking in d mouth cld u help me out .wanna try it again which sugar to use n pl tell d flour butter n sugar qnty in grams .
D browny luks just like yrs
Hi, I dont have kitchen scale so could not help you with measurement in weight sorry. If it is gooey and uncooked in the middle, make sure your baking powder is fresh in stock. Also use a broader pan and Bake until the crust is formed well. The top layer may look hard as you take it out from oven, but after few hours or next day, it will be nice to eat. If you want you can also try my latest brownie recipe I posted. http://www.rakskitchen.net/2015/03/eggless-brownie-recipe-eggless-brownies.html
