Vegan Chocolate and Tahini Brownies
Method
  • Preheat oven to 180* (350*F) Fan.
  • Fill a pot halfway with water and bring to a boil.
  • Melt the dark chocolate couverture in a bain marie. This is easily done when you put the chocolate in a metallic bowl and place it above the pot with the water. Make sure to lower the heat, so that the water is simmering. Mix the chocolate with a spatula until it melts.
  • Add the tahini, cognac and orange juice, and mix to combine.
  • In the meantime, in a seperate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon,  grated zest and caster sugar. Mix well with a spatula and add the mixture with the chocolate.
  • Line a 25x30 cm baking pan with parchment paper. Brush with some sunflower oil and dust with cocoa, so that the brownies don’t stick to the pan.
  • Pour the mixture in to the pan and bake for 20 minutes.
Tip
To make the perfect brownie DO NOT bake longer than necessary!!!
