More and more I get asked for specialist baking or dietary cakes in the form of Gluten-wheat-egg-dairy-free vegan. At Buns of Fun it’s exciting when a request comes in for something like this and we’re more than happy to be able to stretch our apron strings and use a variety of ingredients and mix it up.Here at Buns HQ there are 2 small budding chefs who love to lick a bowl and are only too pleased to be asked to ‘mix this’ and ‘stir that’. It’s lovely to hear them discovering about food and it’s origins and having pride in producing (or ‘helping’ to produce) something that the whole family can enjoy.
If you have a specialist requirement or have little folks who like to wave a spatula, this is for you. Stand back and be prepared to be amazed by what shouldn’t really work – but actually does!
With only a soupcon of regular kitchen ingredients you can knock up a batch of this too-easy-to-make versatile pud’. Brill as brownies or served warm from the oven with custard or cream (other non dairy additions are available. ;o)
Super Peasy One-Bowl Chocolate Brownie
(p.s. Egg-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, vegetarian and vegan)
((pp.s. and super peasy for children to make!))
Ingredients – Dry
1 ½ cups Doves Wheat & Gluten Free Flour
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa (I use Belbake cocoa which is vegan)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsb baking powder
½ tsp salt
Ingredients – Wet
1 tsp white vinegar (I know, trust me..)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
5 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup water
Super easy peasy sifting flour, sugar, salt, soda, and cocoa together into an 8” square greased cake pan.
Make three wells. Pour oil into one well, vinegar into second, and vanilla into third well.
Pour cold water over all, and combine with a fork.
Bake at 180c for 35 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
Wait 5 minutes to cool before turning out or slice and serve with fresh summer fruits and a dollop of cream. Or if you can restrain yourself dust your bake with icing sugar and keep a safe distance until chow time. You’re welcome!
