Brownie Recipe – Eggless Chocolate Brownie

Eggless chocolate brownie recipe

Who doesn’t like brownie? As Valentine day is coming up awfully fast and here is the brownie recipe for you. Make it for your loved ones and also for yourself. :)

I have tried so many eggless brownie recipes, and I have failed so many times. After doing so many experiments, finally I come up with this recipe. This is fudge like brownie. It is moist, chewy, gooey and very chocolaty Brownie. Here is the picture below with comparison of failed and successful experiments. The failed one was very dry and crumbly. But this one is very moist and fudgy.

Eggless Chocolate Brownie

I have used applesauce to make it moist and as an egg replacer. If you remember then I have used applesauce in eggless strawberry bread and eggless applesauce bread. If you look at scientifically, Eggs work as a leaving agent and give richness and moistness to brownie. And as the same purpose applesauce is used. Applesauce has high amount of moisture in it which turn to steam in the oven and gives a lift to brownie as similarly egg does as a leaving agent.

Eggless chocolate brownie recipe

I have used lots of chocolate to make this eggless brownie chocolaty and that’s why you won’t taste applesauce in it at all. I asked my husband to taste this brownie and he loved it. Then I told him that I have used applesauce in it and he thinks that I am joking.

Step by step recipe for Eggless Chocolate Brownie:

1) Preheat the oven to 350 degree F or 180 degree C for at least 10 minutes.

2) Lightly butter or spray with non-stick cooking spray 8×8 inch baking pan. Line it with parchment paper with sides up. So it will be easy to lift up after it bakes. Again butter  or spray the parchment paper.

Chewy, gooey, fudgy eggless chocolate brownie recipe – very delicious and very easy to make.
Author:
Recipe Category: Baked Eggless Dessert
Cuisine: World
Yield: 9 pieces (almost 2 ½ inches squares)
Ingredients
  • All purpose flour – ¾ cup
  • Baking soda – ¼ teaspoon
  • Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt – a pinch (1/8 teaspoon)
  • Butter – 3 tablespoons
  • Chocolate chips – 1 ½ cups **Notes
  • Applesauce – ½ cup **Notes
  • Sugar – ½ cup
  • Hot water – 2 tablespoons
  • Pure vanilla extract – 1 teapoon
**Notes –
  • Chocolate chips – Instead of chocolate chips, you can use 8 oz Semi-sweet chocolate of your choice. I had some Hersey’s chocolate chips sitting in my pantry and I wanted to use that so I have used that. But semisweet chocolate will also works perfect for this recipe.
  • Applesauce – I have used store bought applesauce. But you use homemade too. Let’s quickly go through how to make applesauce at home: peel, core and cut 3 medium apples. Cook them with 6 tablespoons of water on low heat till cooked (about 20 minutes). Mash it with potato masher until it gets smooth.
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F or 180 degree C.
  2. Lightly butter or spray with non-stick cooking spray 8×8 inch baking pan. Line it with parchment paper with sides up. So it will be easy to lift up after it bakes. Again butter or spray the parchment paper.
  3. Take all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Mix it well and keep it aside till needed.
  4. Take butter and chocolate in a bowl. Melt in the microwave for 40 seconds. (You can melt them by using double boiler method.)
  5. They are melted but by look they are not melted totally. Then whisk it with wire whisk till it gets smooth.
  6. Take apple sauce and sugar in large enough bowl. Whisk it till sugar dissolves. Then add hot water and vanilla extract. Mix it well.
  7. Then add melted chocolate.
  8. Whisk it well till it gets incorporated well. Do not over beat it because we don’t want to get air in the batter (because we want chewy brownie not like cake)
  9. Then add dry ingredients. And mix it with spatula till combined.
  10. Pour the batter into prepared pan. Even it out with butter knife and tap the pan on counter top few times to get rid of air bubbles.
  11. Bake it into preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. Check it by inserting a toothpick in the center and it will come with few moist crumbs.
  12. Let the brownie cool completely in the pan on wire rack. As it cools it will deflate a bit. But don’t worry it is perfectly fine.
  13. Then pop it into the refrigerator for 1 hour before cutting.
  14. Then remove brownie out of the pan with the help of parchment paper.
  15. And cut them into 9 equal pieces or as per your desire size and serve.
Additional Info
Taste – gooey, chocolaty and chewy
Shelf life – I stored them in airtight container in single layer and kept in refrigerator. It stays good for 3-4 days in refrigerator. Or even you can freeze them for 1 month.
Serving suggestions – I would like to serve them cold just right from the refrigerator. I like to bite into them as it is. You can serve it with ice-creams.
Tips –
- Always preheat the oven for 10 minutes before baking at mentioned temperature.
- While melting chocolate, be very careful because they melt fast. If chocolate burns then it doesn’t taste good at all.
- Do not whisk the brownie batter too much. As we don’t want to get air into the batter. If it gets airy then its texture is cakey not fudge like.

    Loved the recipe. Made it with buttermilk as I didn’t have apples at home, but turned out awesome, thanks a lot for sharing :)

    • Kanan March 31, 2014, 12:32 pm

      happy to know that recipe is helpful to you.

  • jolly March 3, 2014, 8:28 pm

    Thanks for sharing the wonderful recipe. Have you used salter or unsalted butter?

    • Kanan March 3, 2014, 9:06 pm

      I have used unsalted butter. You can use salted butter, but skip the salt in the recipe.

  • KB January 22, 2014, 4:50 am

    These look fabulous! Your thoughts on replacing the butter and semi sweet choc -
    How would you change it to use cocoa powder and a substitute for butter (and not oil in place of butter)? Any thoughts?
    Thanks!

  • Mary Woronowsk January 20, 2014, 8:54 pm

    I have been searching for egg less cookie and brownie recipes for years! My son has a near fatal egg allergy, and feels left out when we eat certain goodies. I am beyond excited! Thank you!

  • Miraj December 23, 2013, 7:04 pm

    Hi,

    Just wondering whether I can use flaxseed powder (soaked in water) rather than applesauce.
    If so, how much?
    Thanks

    • Kanan December 23, 2013, 7:30 pm

      I have not tried it with flaxseed powder, so not sure how much add and how it will turn out. If you do not like to use applesauce then you can try this eggless cocoa brownie recipe http://www.spiceupthecurry.com/eggless-brownies/

      Thanks for the feedback :)

  • Hanisha August 15, 2013, 1:38 pm

    hi, I baked these brownies twice in my convection oven but i dont know where i went wrong ….The brownies remain very sticky n doughy types even after 25 min of baking( at 170 degree ) ..while the top edges start turning black almost burnt….n also later when i try to de mould it …it didnt come out completely….the bottom stuck to the pan (though well greased) can u pls help me out urgently as i had planned to make them for a family gathering after a day or two ……

    • Kanan August 15, 2013, 2:34 pm

      I can’t say exactly what went wrong without seeing it. but as per your comment I can think of few things -

      you said, ‘brownie remains doughy and top starts to burn’. look like that your oven temperature might be too high. but you said you bake at 170 which is not high. uumm.. no clue. try to bake it at mentioned temp 180 degree C and keep rack in the middle of the oven while you bake.

      Just to let you know that this brownies are “look” uncooked and very very soft to touch when you remove from the oven. do not touch it or cut it. be patient and let it cool completely, then put in the refrigerator to set and chill then cut it.

      if not using parchment paper then grease well as you did. but do not de mould it. cut the pieces in the pan after it chills in refrigerator. and try to remove the cut and smaller pieces. this might be easy to remove smaller piece rather than removing the whole brownie upside down.

      this is the type of brownie that you have to chill in the fridge in order to let it set.

      Hope this helps.

  • Jyoti July 2, 2013, 6:00 am

    They look wonderful.. I am a brownie fan and have tried a number of recipes.. but havent tried one with apple sauce.. bookmarked.. will surely try this one..

  • gujarati recipes March 19, 2013, 5:06 pm

    wow ……
    This is a mouth watering dessert.
    This looks yummy.

  • Krishnapriya March 14, 2013, 8:41 am

    Hey! The recipe looks absolutely great and you’re step-by-step instructions make it look really simple to make. Am definitely going to try this one today, however I have a question. Am very clear until step 10 and its #11 that confused me. You’ve mentioned ‘mix dry to wet and bake’ followed by ‘add dry ingredients’. Haven’t you already mixed all dry and wet ingredients until step 10?

    Please clarify really soon because am very keen to try this out ASAP! Thanks in advance.

    • Kanan March 14, 2013, 5:05 pm

      Hi Krishnapriya, let me make whole procedure simple for you,
      steps 3 & 4 – mix only dry ingredients and keep it aside.
      steps 5 to 10 – prepare only wet ingredients and keep aside
      steps 11 & 12 – mix dry and wet both together
      and in next step bake in the preheated oven.
      Please let me know if still you didn’t get it.

      • Krishnapriya March 15, 2013, 11:30 am

        Thanks a ton Kanan!! I guess I was confused by a very silly misread. Will surely try this out and let you know how it turned :)

        • Kanan March 15, 2013, 11:53 am

          No Problem. Please do share your feedback.

        • Krishnapriya June 15, 2013, 1:13 pm

          Hi Kanan! I finally got a chance to try this recipe. Turned out great taste wise, however I did face a few problems.

          Firstly, I thought the texture was too goey/fudgy in the centre and at the bottom. Is that how it’s supposed to be, because I found it difficult to lift the pieces off the tray. The pieces started to crumble a little on doing do.

          Secondly, the color of my brownies turned out to be a dark chocolate as opposed to your brownies that appear fresh brown. Is that got to do with the kind of chocolate one uses? Can one use any flavour of chocolate (barring white) for this recipe? Also, how might I add nuts such as walnuts to this to make it a chocolate walnut brownie?

          Do write back to me so I can rectify my steps the next time.

          Thanks,
          Krishnapriya

          • Kanan June 15, 2013, 2:39 pm

            Hello Krishnapriya,
            1) did you let it chill in the refrigerator (Step 16)? if not then it will be difficult to lift because of that gooey part did not set properly. and yes it is too gooey and fudge like as mentioned in description

            2) the color and flavor of the brownies are purely depends on what kind of chocolate you used. all company has different flavor, quality and color. I have used Hersey’s chocolate. addition of walnuts would be a great idea, it will give nice crunch to the brownies. add it in step 12.

            Hope this helps. :)

            • Krishnapriya July 21, 2013, 10:06 am

              Hey again Kanan! Can you suggest a good recipe for an eggless chocolate brownie? Not fudgy because there’s already this wonderful recipe of yours. I tried a recipe once but the cocoa taste was overwhelming. Strange because I followed the measurements to perfection.

              Do write back soon. Thanks!

              • Kanan July 22, 2013, 11:54 am

                I have not any cake like means no fudge like brownie recipe which is tried and tasted. I do need to try it and once I get success I will let you know and share the recipe here.

    I came across you website while looking for an eggless brownie recipe. You have described every important detail as simple as possible. Since the pictures were convincing, I decided to give this a try and it was gooooddd!!! And this is my first time making brownies! Turned out exactly like the ones in the picture except mine is slightly a bit oilier because I just eyeballed the butter but it still taste great, can’t believe how fudgy it is. =) Other than that, I’d like to say, thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Looking forward to trying out other recipes here!

          I have not tried particular this recipe with eggs, though you can try with replacing 1/2 cup of applesauce with 2 eggs.
