Vegan Brownies

Vegan Brownies


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter or oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or 2 tsp yogurt dissolved in 1 cup water wit
  • 2 teaspoons tsp instant coffee, dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips dusted in a little plain flour (optional)


  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients together and then add all of the wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly and transfer into a greased, lined tin.
  2. Bake at gas mark 4 for 20-25 minutes. Poke with a skewer- it should come out semi-clean for a fudgy brownie or bake for a little longer for a cake.
  3. Allow to cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack.
  4. Allow to cool thoroughly for maximum chocolaty taste.


This recipe can also be veganized to make a perfect, dense and delightful brownie! For a vegan version, use 1 cup soy milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice mixed in in place of the buttermilk.
