Dense brownie recipe with step by step photos. Egg free and easily adaptable to vegan version. Perfect homemade brownie for your chocolate cravings.

I noted down this recipe when I was looking out for recipes using psyllium husk. However, this recipe just uses 1 tsp of it, But I wanted to try this brownie as it is the one I crave for. Very close to my favorite brownie from Famous Amos. Only that this more dense and rich. The original recipe is vegan, but I made it using dairy products. May be because of that it was bit buttery & sweeter side.

Earlier, my brownies were more like cake, though it was delicious. But I wanted something dense, with more texture, gooey and chocolatey. Chocolate chips added in this will help with gooey texture here and there. The amount of butter and sugar takes care of the dense texture. Best part is, no baking powder or baking soda in this. So it helps in achieving this fudgy brownies.

Still it is not chewy or hard. How could it be with all the butter. I made less in quantity. Glad I did not do any extra ganache or topping as it is good by itself. If you want you can try any caramel or chocolate ganache. I suggest to reduce 1/4 cup of sugar in that case so that it is not too sweet as already this brownie is sweet.

For variations, you can use all vegan replacements. Dark cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips can be used. Check out my other eggless cake recipes.
