Reese's Brownie Recipe (sticky and moist centre)




Reese's Brownie Recipe without eggs and nuts with a sticky and moist, chocolatey centre 
(can also be gluten free by using gluten free flour).


I've been on a bit of a baking frenzy since I started trying my hand at baking. However, there is one thing I have stumbled upon that has made my life a lot easier - apples and pears.  Nearly every recipe calls for eggs, which doesn't make it easy. I've been experimenting with different substitutes such as maple syrup and banana. But the syrup just doesn't quite cut it ....it makes the recipe more sugary and brown. And I'm not a fan of banana flavour other then when it's called for. So, a great egg substitute I've found is well-grated apple or pear. The flavours are subtle and unnoticeable. And they're a lot healthier than eggs...less cholesterol and fat.

Originally, I was going to cook a basic chocolate cake from Sweet Paul's, but then I thought I wanted something more moist, so I that's how I began my brownie experiment.
As I was mixing the batter, I quickly noticed how it looked like dog poo. There's a lot of dog poo on the streets in Italy, as well as in other parts of Europe and my mind has a tendency to become preoccupied by the amount of poop I see on the streets. It can literally be a minefield, depending on where you live. Just recently, near our home, while I was walking towards work, I counted 12 spots of dog poo matter in half a block. I wonder.....could that be a world record??! 



Grease the pan with butter and spread the brownie mix 
evenly on the pan.


Doesn't it look like poo to you too?





As I was spreading the batter on the greased pan, I couldn't help but be disgusted. I almost had a violent reaction, but was able to suppress it, since I hadn't had anything to eat in a while. 





It finally started looking a little less like "poop."





The "piece De resistance." It finally looked like a brownie. And boy, was it ever so delicious! 

Here's my recipe:


11/2 cups of white or brown sugar (whatever you have in the house)
11/2 cups flour ( or gluten-free flour)
1 tsp baking soda
a pinch of salt
1/2 stick of butter (of a 125 gr pack) (semi-melted)
1 cup of Cocoa powder
21/2 to 3 small grated apples (peeled of course)


Mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon or spatula.


Bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 170 to 180 Celsius (340 to 350 F)
Let it cool for half an hour. 


Note:


I've used both white sugar and brown sugar in all these recipes and I haven't noticed any difference except in the colour of the baked good. Also, brown sugar is definitely harder to come by and more expensive in Italy, so white sugar works for me. 


This brownie recipe is very sticky and moist in the centre (it's how I like it), so if you want the consistency to be more cake like, use less apples and more flour.


I managed to eat more than half of the brownies in this pan in just a matter of 3 days. It was just too delicious.....I couldn't stop. Every time, I took a piece, I went back for more. Is that too much? Nah!!!
