Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons light margarine
1 tablespoon instant coffee crystals
1 cup sugar
Egg substitute equivalent to 2 eggs or 2 eggs
1/4 cup prune baby food
2 teaspoons vanilla
Vegetable oil spray
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Set aside. Melt margarine in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add coffee crystals and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Using a wooden spoon, add sugar, egg substitute, prune baby food and vanilla to coffee mixture. Stir until combined. Fold cocoa mixture into sugar mixture until combined. Spray 8x8x2-inch cake pan with vegetable oil spray. Spoon batter into baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out almost clean. It should have a few fudgy crumbs on it. Cool brownies in the pan or on a wire rack. Sift powdered sugar over brownies. Serves 12.
