I'm hunting brownie recipes! I need dairy-free ones that call for cocoa, not a hunk of chocolate. I know there's dairy-free hunk-of-chocolate options out there, but I'd prefer to use cocoa, which is cheaper- and I can make up mixes ahead of time.

If your recipe includes chocolate chips, do post it. I plan on picking up some Enjoy Life chocolate chips this weekend.

I've tried Carol Fenster's recipe, but we didn't care for how they turned out. (Which surprised me- everything else of hers that I've made has turned out good. Just a matter of taste, I guess.) They were kind of dry and dense.

The flours I always have in the house are:
-White Rice Flour
-Sorghum Flour
-Tapioca Flour
-Corn Starch
-Potato Starch (most of the time)
-Sweet (Glutinous) Rice Flour

Thanks for your help!!! :D

Things I've stolen plagiarized borrowed from this site (haven't tried them):

Gluten-free casein-free vegan chocolate cake
A very dark and moist vegan chocolate cake, but with a definite crumb structure
Makes 9 squares
Set the oven temperature at 350F. Grease an 8"x8" or 9"x9" square pan with coconut oil or shortening. Sprinkle with rice flour.

Ingredients
------------
Sift together in a large bowl:
1 cup white rice flour
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons unalkalized cocoa
Pour over the dry ingredients mixture:
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Mix together until smooth, scrape in the pan, and bake until the center springs back to the touch and the cake has set in the middle, 35 minutes or longer.
Do not cut until cold. This is fork-eating plate cake, and will make sticky cupcakes.


Hot Fudge Cake

Ingredients
-----------
1 C packed brown sugar
1 C Flour
C plus 3 T unsweetened cocoa
C packed brown sugar
2tsp baking powder
tsp salt
c milk
2T margarine or butter melted

1 c boiling water

Mix 1C brown sugar, flour, 3 T cocoa, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Stir in milk, melted margarine, and vanilla. Spread over the bottom of the Crock-Pot.

In another bowl, mix together c brown sugar and c cocoa. Sprinkle evenly over mixture in the crock-pot. Do NOT stir.

Pour in the boiling water. Do NOT stir. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping.
(recipe is for use with a 3 quart crock pot)
from the Rival crockpot recipe book pg 209

2 eggs
1 cup milk (optional: add 1 teaspoon vinegar to sour)

Acquired from somewhere else, already forgotten, maybe here as well.

Two bite Brownies

1/2c plus 2 tbsp gluten-free flour( they used Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 c. sugar
1/4c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 c. canola oil
1 tbsp. vanilla ( yes 1 tbsp)!
1/2c. mini choc chips gluten-free

bake 325 for 15min or until set.

In bowl mix dry ingredients.In another bowl mix applesauce, oil, & vanilla.Stir into dry ingredients. Stir in mini chips. Spoon into mini greased muffin pans


Velvet Brownies
2/3 cup gluten-free flour mix
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablepoons baby food pear or pea puree or unsweetened applesauce (I tried the recipe with pear puree).
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Optional: 1 tablespoon chopped peacans, walnuts, or macadamia nutes.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8"x8" pan with vegetable oil spray (I just used wax paper and olive oil). In a measuring cup, combine the flour mix, cocoa, cinnamon, and salt. In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites and egg slightly. Add the sugar, puree, oil, and vanilla and wisk until blended, but don't overbeat. Pour into the prepared pan and sprinkle on the nuts (if used). Bake until set and a tester comes out clean, about 25 minutes (I'd go a few minutues longer, like 27). Cool before cutting into 2" squares. Makes 16 brownies.

Hey Sarah :D

I have no luck with brownies--I go with Gluten Free Pantry. They are excellent with the Enjoy Life Chips ;)

Here's a recipe I use a lot--it's the world's easiest chocolate cake and it uses cocoa--

CHOCOLATE CAKE

Whip one large egg until frothy, Add 1/4 cup oil, one cup milk (I use almond milk) and a teaspoon of vanilla.

Combine one cup rice flour, 1/4 cup cocoa, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum.

Add to the wet ingredients, combine and mix for one minute.

Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes in an 8 inch square pan.

Loosely adapted from the Ener-g Rice Flour box :P

Thank you so much, everyone!!! :wub: Jess, what a stash! :lol: Thanks. I usually buy the Gluten-Free Pantry mix, too. They're awesome. I wasn't sure if they were casein-free; I don't have a box in the cupboard at the moment. So that's good to know!

If anyone has more, keep them coming! :D
