Cooking tip: delectably fudgy low-fat brownies
03/25/06 05:55 AM

I've seen some complaints about low-fat brownies being more cakey than fudgy... this worked for me, hopefully it'll work for others.

I use a brownie mix, because the trace amounts of dairy don't bother me. Instead of replacing the oil with applesauce, I used SOY MILK. I was mostly just trying it because my applesauce had gone blue and hairy (eww!) and I was too lazy to go buy more. Well, the brownies turned out BETTER with the soy milk - dense and chewy.

Obviously, this is not a fat-free substitution, but it's still quite low-fat and should be good for anyone except those allergic to soy (obviously!).

Be sure to UNDERBAKE them, also. I only bake brownies until the center is set, and a toothpick inserted still comes out with half-baked batter, because brownies continue to "cook" after you take them out of the oven.

Now I have to go put some of these brownies in the freezer so I don't eat the whole darn pan!
