For the main event: my impromptu, egg-free applesauce brownies with salted caramel! At my husband's work, they take it in turn making treats for each other's birthday. This month, the person who should have made the treats forgot, so I whipped this up for my husband and his workmates. Two of the colleagues don't eat eggs, so all recipes needed to be egg-free. Those salted caramel applesauce brownies are what I came up with! To my surprise, you couldn't even tell they were missing eggs!
One of the great things about this recipe is its versatility, given the short-notice I had, I used store-bought applesauce, but with summer just around the corner, making your own applesauce for your summer baking would be amazing! The applesauce I used had chunks of apple in, so you could really taste the applesauce.
Ingredients:For the salted caramel applesauce brownies
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup sunflower oil
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla paste
salted caramel to taste
All right, let's bake:
Preheat your oven to 200C.
Place the sugar, four, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder in a large bowl.
Next, add in the sunflower oil, vanilla paste and caramel, taking care to mix well.
Once incorporated fully, stir in the applesauce.
Bake in silicone cupcake cases for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
Once cool, top with buttercream and a generous lashing of chocolate sprinkles.
These delicious brownies look unassuming and innocent, but they're filled with naughty goodness and flavor--from the rich cocoa powder to the salty and indulgent caramel.The buttercream and the sprinkles help to take it up a notch, making it a perfect treat for any occasion!
