Remember the dulce de leche I made in this post??? While eating spoonfuls of it, I've also been thinking of other ways in which to use it up. That is when I saw this eggless brownie recipe of Divya's. I decided to make it with one major change.....a whole cup of dulce de leche went into my brownie.....and I must say this is one of the best brownies I have ever made. It turned out soft, chewy and just right.....even a non-chocoholic like me cannot stop eating it.
What you need:
Maida/all purpose flour - 1 cup
Fresh curd - 1 cup
Milk - a ladleful (if needed)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Dulce de leche - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1.5 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Cocoa powder - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Cashew - a handful
Take curd in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, baking powder and baking soda to it. Let it bubble for a minute or two. Now add vanilla essence and oil to this. Mix well. Slowly stir in the maida and cocoa powder little by little to make a smooth, lumpless batter. Add the dulce de leche and mix well, breaking lumps if any with the back of a spoon. If you find that the mix is too thick, add milk. I had to add a ladleful of milk at this point. Stir in the cashew nuts.
Bake at 200 degree centigrade for 10 minutes....then reduce the temperature to 150 degrees and bake for another 25 minutes or till done.
Grease a square Let the brownies cool completely.
Slice and dig in.
