Chocolate and Apple Sauce Brownie

Serves 10-12
Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

85g plain flour 

20g cocoa powder 

2 tsp baking powder 

Pinch of salt

2 eggs

1 tbsp honey or to taste, optional 

180g apple sauce or apple puree

160ml cold-pressed apple juice 

200g 85% dark chocolate

 

Extra chocolate or icing of your choice to top 

Method

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line a 20×20 square tin with baking paper. 

Sift all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and set aside.

Whisk the eggs, and honey (if you are using) until light and pale.

Warm the apple juice in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and gently stir to melt the chocolate, creating a smooth ‘ganache’.

Mix the apple sauce into the eggs. Then add the chocolate mixture and gently fold in the dry ingredients.

Place the batter into the lined tin.

Bake at 170°C for 20 minutes.

Set aside to cool.

Top with some grated chocolate or some chocolate icing to serve.
