Handy Hint

<p>I altered recipe slightly and only added 2 tbsp oil but then added 50g of melted dark (dairy-free) chocolate. The result was good. <br />I also only had a 7&rdquo; square tin but just added 5 mins to cooking time which was fine.</p>

    I have started buying my Dairy free Chocolate for Cooking from D&D Chocolate, their website is - they sell flakes and dairy free choc chips which are great for throwing in recipes.

    Ds is egg allergic but not dairy so I replaced 5 tbs of sunflower for a combo of 3tbs melted butter and 2tbs of sunflower oil. I also swapped soya milk for cows milk and aadded a small bag of choc buttons to the mix. A winner all round Ty x

    Lovely. My littlest DC cried when they were all finished! I only had unsweetened soya milk so I used a bit less than 8oz and added a big splurge of dairy-free chocolate ice cream topping. Am making them again today.

    Another tip - I made this again at weekend for dd&#39;s birthday and added a mashed up banana at the end and it was alot more moist. Lovely. Also, for a dairy free topping, melt 100g dark (dairy free) chocolate and mix in approx 3 tbsn golden syrup. Allow to cool slightly then smear over top and allow to set.

    Not as gooey as proper brownies, but what do you expect with no eggs & butter! Still lovely and moist.
