My youngest and I are always on the lookout for yummy dairy free treats, but they are usually so expensive in the supermarkets that it’s cheaper for me to just make something at home. I haven’t had brownies in forever, and around that ‘special time of the month’ all I want is chocolate. The boy also craves cake, for which he would happily eat his own body weight of the stuff, and let’s face it a little chunk of brownie goes a long way with a 5 year old!
Recently I went to meet Holly, from Little Pickle’s Mom, who I met online and then found out we live around the corner from each other. Being raised by a mother who taught us to never turn up at someone’s house empty handed I thought I would give a recipe I found over at the Happy Foodie a go. I mean it is Mary Berry, so it’s sure to be winner right? Anyway I halved the recipe, made it dairy free and they turned out perfect! So good in fact I have since made a second batch.
Now you can of course make these with butter if you wish, or even use the original recipe to make a much bigger batch, but I found my altered recipe yielded a decent amount to fill an 8″ square tin. If you cut it into bite sized pieces I think that’s more than enough of a cakey sugar fix for any hungry kiddo. Also they go great with a bit of hot custard on a cold day too.
If you give the recipe a go let me know in the comments below how you got on with it, I would love to hear from you.

Grease and line an 8" square pan and preheat the oven to 160C
Put all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and with a hand mixer blend the ingredients until the batter is smooth
Using a spactula pour the ingredients into the pan and spread evenly into the corners
Bake in the middle of the oven for 30-35 minutes until a tooth pick comes out clean
Leave to cool and slice into as many pieces as you like. I slice ours into 12 'fingers' just big enough for little ones
If you want to jazz the brownies up you can top the brownie with chocolate frosting, Betty Crockers is good as it is alreagy dairy free in most cases. But don't do this until the brownie is completely cooled. Slice and serve up as usual.
