EGGLESS BROWNIES

Someone asked if i had a recipe for eggless brownies. I was cleaning my apartment and found this recipe in my kitchen. It's the best tasting eggless brownie recipe i've found, but it's not perfect. You really have to add stuff to make the brownies taste good. I would definitely add the walnuts or any other type of nut. Also, add chocolate chips (try mixing a few types... White, semi-sweet, and milk). The flour "paste" prevents the floury taste many eggless baked goods end up with.

INGREDIENTS : 

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 cup water 
  • /2 cup butter 
  • /3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups white sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking powder * 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) 

DIRECTIONS : 

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees f (175 degrees c). Grease a 9x13 inch pan. In a heavy     saucepan combine the 1/3 cup of flour and water. Cook over medium heat stirring     constantly until thick. Transfer to a mixing bowl and set aside to cool. 
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter. When butter has melted, add the cocoa and mix     until smooth; set aside to cool. Beat the sugar and vanilla into the cooled flour     mixture. Stir in the cocoa mixture until well blended. Combine the flour, baking     powder and salt, stir into the batter until just blended. Fold in walnuts if desired.     Spread evenly in the prepared pan. 
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the     center comes out clean. Cool before cutting into bars.

MUFFINS


Chocolate Muffins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees f (177 degrees c). Place rack in the middle of the oven. Line 16 muffin pans with paper liners or spray with a non stick vegetable spray.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk the ricotta cheese and then add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the milk, vanilla extract, and cooled and melted butter, mixing well. Set aside. 

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. Add the ricotta mixture to the flour mixture. Stir just until combined and then fold in the chocolate chips. Do not over mix this batter or the muffins will be tough when baked. 

Divide the batter amongst the 16 muffin cups using two spoons or an ice cream scoop.

Graham Cracker Crust

Here is a lovely cranberry cream cheese tart that is dressed for the holiday season. It has a ginger and graham cracker crumb flavored crust, a no bake cream cheese filling, and is topped with a delicious homemade cranberry-raspberry sauce. It is quick and easy to make and is enjoyed by both children and adults.

Your browser may not support display of this image. This is an easy dessert to put together as it uses a graham cracker crumb crust which is, by far, the simplest of all the pie crusts. If you have problems with getting the right crust consistency, the test to see if you have the right amount of crumbs to melted butter is, once you have mixed the ingredients together, to squeeze some in your fist and if they hold together, you have the perfect crust. To liven up the flavor of the crust with a subtle ginger taste, i have added some crushed ginger cookies along with the graham cracker crumbs. Once the crust is made and left to chill in the refrigerator, the next step is to simply mix the filling ingredients together. The filling is then poured into the crust, covered, and left to chill in the refrigerator several hours or even overnight.

While this tart is excellent with a medley of fresh berries, it is lovely with a cran-raspberry sauce. The sauce has a nice sweet tangy flavor and is made by cooking fresh cranberries and either fresh or frozen raspberries with sugar and a little lemon or orange zest. If you like you can also add a splash of cherry brandy (kirschwasser or kirsch). I like to serve the sauce separate, alongside the tart, so everyone can have as much, or as little, as they like. 

Crust: mix together the graham cracker crumbs, ginger cookie crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a well greased 8-9 inch (20-23 cm) tart pan with removable bottom. (a spring form pan can also be used. Press the crumb mixture onto the bottom and about one inch (2.5 cm) up the sides of the pan.) Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill while you make the filling.

Filling: in the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat in the vanilla extract. 

In a clean bowl, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Gradually fold or beat the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Pour the filling over the chilled graham cracker crust and smooth the top. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight. Serve with the cran-raspberry sauce.

Cran-raspberry sauce: in a large saucepan combine all the ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the sauce thickens and is bubbly. Remove from heat and let cool. (note: taste and add more sugar as needed.) Cover and store in the refrigerator. Makes about 2 cups (480 ml).
