Fudge Brownies

Updated! (see below)
6 oz unsweetened chocolate (I used vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips)
1/2 cup vegan margarine
2 cups light brown sugar
10 oz prune puree (baby food!)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 Tbs. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla extract
unsweetened cocoa powder & confectioners' sugar for dusting

Please note new cooking time below.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 9x9-inch baking pan wiht foil or parchment paper, and coat with cooking spray.

2. Melt chocolate & margarine in double broiler or heatproof bowl in microwave. Whisk in brown sugar and prune puree.

3. Combine flour and baking powder in large bowl. Fold chocolate mixture into flour mixture. Add vanilla. Spread batter in prepared pan, and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until top looks dry and brownie is just beginning to pull away from sides of pan. (I had to bake mine about 30-35 minutes and brownies were not overdone, still moist.)

4. Cool in pan. Unmold and cut into 1x1-inch squares. Sift cocoa powder over half of brownies. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar over remaining brownies.

You can even add some extra chocolatey sweetness by spreading Duncan Hines Creamy Home-Style Chocolate Frosting on top instead of cocoa or confectioners' sugar...

I'm going to make this for my bible study Sunday Night! Mine won't be fully vegan, but it will be healthy because I only have organic baking supplies!! I love made from scratch foods! I'll tell you if they were a hit!

I like vegan brownies. I write a food blog for semi-vegetarians (I eat fish) and vegetarians.

I updated this with a longer cooking time as the last few times I've made them, they are WAY too gooey. Even baking 30-35 minutes they are still moist brownies and much better!
