I found this gluten free brownie recipe on the site of a blogger who I've found via her linking up to the Hearth and Soul blog hop. She's got a lot of great frugal recipes there, and this one happened to be gluten free and delicious! I adapted it somewhat to make it cheaper (lowering the amount of cocoa powder and cutting out the chocolate chips and the nuts) and its been a huge hit in my family. Next goal- attempt to make it refined sugar free!
But in the meantime, here's the great recipe that simply gets devoured in our house.
5 large eggs
1 cup oil (I've used sunflower, palm, and walnut but you can use whichever oil you like best)
2.5 cups sugar (I know, its a lot!)
1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla sugar (I used my homemade vanilla sugar)
1.5 cups cocoa powder
2.5 cups potato starch, corn starch, or tapioca starch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Mix the first four ingredients.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients.
3. Pour into a 9x13 baking pan. I line mine with parchment paper; if you don't, you may want to grease the pan.
4. Bake at 350 until a knife stuck into the center comes out clean. This should be between 20 and 35 minutes.
Are you a brownie lover? Do you like chocolate in general? What is your favorite way to eat chocolate? Do you prefer brownies or chocolate cake?
As for me, I love chocolate, ideally chocolate with mint. Lately, I've fallen in love with dark chocolate and prefer it to milk chocolate (which is a good thing, because I can't eat milk). I prefer brownies to chocolate cake, and typically don't enjoy store bought chocolate ice cream as I find it too chocolately...
