Expert Baking Tips

Although this recipe for these homemade eggless brownies is super simple a few expert tips i’d recommend are:

  • For aquafaba you can pick this from nearly every supermarket now. However, if you can’t find it, aquafaba is essentially chickpea juice. 
  1. So to get the chickpea juice/aquafaba simply drain the chickpeas over a bowl and use that juice whip in a clean bowl using an electric whisk/stand mixer.
  2. And watch as it transforms into meringue

  • Brownies tend to stick to your tins so it’s really important to grease it properly. What really works for me is greasing the tin with vegan butter and then dusting the sides and button of the tin in cocoa powder. And the cake always just slips out.
  • I like to use caster sugar in my cakes which is just a very refined sugar. So if you can’t find caster sugar I’d recommend using very refined granulated sugar.

Ingredients list for this gluten-free vegan brownie recipe

For this vegan brownie torte I used Strp’d tigernut flour [AD]. What’s great about this flour is that it’s gluten free, nut free and full of fiber! 

This flour tends to soak a lot of the moisture from any batter, which is perfect for fudgy bakes. And perfect for this gluten-free vegan brownie recipe.

How to make gluten free brownies. Step by step instructions

To make this brownie torte you want to start by wiping your aquafaba and sugar until it doubles in size and becomes pale and fluffy. 

Then sift in your gluten free flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder and xanthan gum. Once combined, heat some vegan chocolate and butter together separately, add pour that into the batter mix.

Chop some vegan chocolate, and add that in to the the batter and mix until just combined. Be careful not to over mix it and pour it into a round cake tin and dollop some caramel across the top and swivel it into the batter.

If you don’t want to make these brownies vegan simply substitute the vegan chocolate for normal milk/dark chocolate. For the vegan butter you can substitute it for margarine or normal block butter – at room temperature for the frosting.
