Ingredients

  • 200 g Dark chocolate with 70% cocoa or above (7oz)
  • 200 g Vegan butter (2 tablespoons less than 1 cup)
  • 300 g Caster/superfine sugar (1+½ cups)
  • 80 g All-purpose flour (⅔ cup)
  • 60 g Unsweetened cocoa powder (⅔ cup)
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking powder
  • 80 ml Soy milk (⅓ cup)
  • 2-3 Teaspoons Orange zest (adjust to taste)
  • 1 Teaspoon Orange extract (optional, again, adjust to taste)
  • 100 g Vegan chocolate chips or chunks (heaped ½ cup)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F (160°C/325°F if you use a fan or convection oven) and line an 8x10-inch rectangular baking tin with baking paper. It's good to leave a bit hanging over each edge to make it easier to remove them after baking.

  2. In a large saucepan, melt the chocolate, vegan butter and caster sugar over a low heat. Stir it occasionally until there are no lumps of chocolate left. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.

  3. Mix the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together in a large bowl. Pour in the melted chocolate mixture along with the soy milk and mix well. Make sure to scrape the sides and the bottom of the bowl so no dry mixture gets left behind. You should end up with a thick brownie batter.

  4. Add the orange zest and/or the orange extract according to your preference. Then gently mix in the chocolate chips/chunks.

  5. Transfer the batter to your lined baking tin and use a spoon or spatula to spread it out to the edges evenly. Bake for 25 minutes. The brownies should have a thin papery crust and be slightly pulling away from the edges of the tin.

  6. Once baked, let the brownies cool completely in the tin. Then transfer the tin to the fridge for 3 hours to let them set.

  7. Once chilled, remove the brownies from the tin and cut into 12 squares. These are quite rich so I recommend cutting each square in half to make 24 triangles.

Recipe Notes

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
