Loco For Cocoa



 Cocoa Brownies
* My brand-new, original recipe (created Tues, 5 April 2011)
* Gluten-free
* Nut-free
* Soft, cake-like interior
* Slightly squidgy, chewy exterior

  • 80g sugar
  • 40g butter
  • 35g olive oil
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 45g rice flour
  • 35g cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp creme of tartar
  • 60 ml evaporated milk
  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. Oil a 20cm length (approximately) rectangular ceramic dish. The dimensions of the dish I used to bake this recipe in were 23cm long x 13 cm wide x 4cm deep.
  3. Beat sugar and butter together.
  4. Beat in egg and vanilla extract.
  5. Add in the remaining dry ingredients in one go, with the evaporated milk last. Only once all of these ingredients are in the bowl, give it a quick mix through with your electric beater, just enough to ensure there are no lumps.
  6. Smooth into rectangular dish. 
  7. Bake for 23 - 25 minutes, or just until a cake skewer comes out clean.
  8. This makes 8 medium slices.
