These brownies are very chocolatey and gooey, due to the chocolate sauce which is mixed into the brownie cake batter.

Chocolate Brownies (wheat)

Sauce – 2 1/2 oz (75g) margarine
1 1/2 oz (45g/5 tbsp) cocoa powder
2 1/2 floz (75ml) soya milk
7 oz (200g) caster sugar
Cake – 6 oz (170g) plain white flour
2½ tsp baking powder
¾ oz (20g/2½ tbsp) cocoa powder
4oz (115g) caster sugar
5 floz (150 ml) soya milk
1½ floz (45ml) vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla essence

1. Pre-heat oven to 180C, Gas Mark 4.

2. Combine all sauce ingredients in a saucepan and gently bring to the boil. Simmer for 1 minute, stirring well. Put saucepan into a bowl of cold water and beat sauce until it cools and thickens. Set aside.

3. Sieve flour, baking powder, cocoa and sugar into a bowl. Whisk soya milk, vegetable oil, vanilla essence and flax seed together, then stir into flour mixture. Finally stir in the sauce – this doesn’t need to be mixed too thoroughly.

4 Place in a greased tin and bake for 30 minutes. Leave to cool and cut into squares.
