Vegan espresso fudge brownies

Vegan espresso fudge brownies

I have made brownies once before and using a brownie pan and it didn’t come out like it should.

Apparently brownies are still supposed to be moist and soft in the middle and I baked mine till the cake tester came out dry and well when the brownies cooled they just got hard like snap cookies, that could snap your teeth while biting into it.

I finally figured that brownies should still be kind of gooey in the middle but not RAW. It took me a couple of tries to finally get the nick of this which in my terms is roughly 20 minutes.

I added a handful of chocolate chips to the batter and it was soo chocolately delicious.

The hard part of this recipe was waiting for an entire hour for it to cool before cutting it into squares, kicking up my feet and enjoying the brownies.

I loved making this recipe I finally figured out how to use a double boiler without splitting the chocolate and this recipe was super duper easy to make I actually made in a mixing jug and just poured everything straight into the square cake tin and as they say the rest is history.
