These are fudgy, light and moreish. Even non-brownie lovers love them. I got the basic recipe from Ms. Cupcake, the Brixton-based vegan bakery, but I’ve gone further by Mexicanising them and making them richer.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
150g plain flour
60g cocoa powder
300g caster sugar
100g cinnamon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon good-quality sea salt, ideally fleur de sel, (this gives it a lovely flavour)
120ml water
100ml sweetened almond or hazelnut milk
280ml rapeseed or groundnut oil, plus extra for oiling (optional)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
or 1 mexican vanilla pod, ground
1 tablespoon chipotle paste
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
100g vegan orange dark chocolate, chopped, (Plamil does a nice one)
170g pecan nuts

To serve:

Quantity Ingredient
soya cream
sprinkling of ground cinnamon or kahlua

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Oil a baking tin, 33 cm x 23 cm, or line with baking parchment.
  2. In a cup, whisk the flaxseed with 2 tablespoons lukewarm water and leave to soak. In a large bowl or stand mixer, combine the flour, cocoa, caster sugar, cinnamon sugar, baking powder and salt. Then add the water, nut milk, oil, vanilla, chipotle paste, smoked paprika, orange chocolate, the flaxseed mixture and half the pecans.
  3. Mix well, then pour into the prepared tin. Arrange the remaining pecans on top of the brownie mixture and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. The brownie may not look cooked when it comes out, but it sets as it cools. You want a soft gooey inside. Leave in the tin to cool, then cut into sections. Serve with soya cream sprinkled with cinnamon or streaked through with a swig of Kahlúa.
  4. No one will know they are vegan. Shh!
