Fudge Brownies (as promised Sheryl)

Recommended Posts




1 cup of unsweetened apple puree (I buy tins of apple and freeze the left overs)

1/2 cup of cocoa

3/4 cup self raising flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips




1. preheat oven to 175 celcius (sorry don't know how to convert to farenheit)

line a 20x20cm dish with nonstick baking paper (or grease with a little oil)


2. place apple puree into a bowl. Sift cocoa, flour and baking soda over the

puree. Add sugar and salt. Mix until just combined (over mixing will make

brownies tough). Gently fold in the chocolate chips.


3. Pour mixture into prepared dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until centre

feels set but still fudge-like when a skewer is inserted. Cool in dish for

5-10 minutes before turning out. Slice into squares when cold.


This recipe is very yummy and my family love it! It is quick and easy and

tastes delicious! You can even heat it slightly and serve with a low gi

icecream to make a lovely dessert!!

Dear Debz, saw this recipe and thought I would give it a go. I had a bit of trouble converting the cups to UK measurements, and didn't have any apple puree, so used apple and pear puree ( is sold as baby food!). Despite the ammendments to your recipe- it turned out really well, and more importantly tastes really good. I'm going to take some for my work colleagues tomorrow ( they are all big chocolate fans) - it will stop me eating it all!.

Dear Lizzie,


Glad the brownie turned out!! I forgot to mention that I buy unsweetened cans of pie apple and then puree it with a hand held blender thingy. I use the 1st cup for the brownie and then freeze the left over in 1 cup lots.... Of course depends on the size of the tin of cooked apples I buy lol !


I am not sure how to convert the cup measurements.....we are metric, I think that 1 cup is approximately 250 mls....but with my foggy brain, I could be wrong hahaha! Anyway glad it turned out regardless! It is yum and to think it doesn't have any butter or margarine in it, makes it that little bit more 'healthy' !!
