A Travelling Cook: Chocolate cauliflower brownies

Chocolate cauliflower brownies





I like using vegetables like carrots, zucchini and beetroot in cakes and slices and I was intrigued to find this recipe for cauliflower and chocolate ice creams. I made a small test batch (enough for a couple of ice creams) and gave them a taste. Well, they tasted very strongly of cauliflower and not great! 

I still had loads of cauliflower puree so I decided to try making brownies with it. Here's what I came up with. Taste before baking, you might like to add more cocoa powder or sugar. 

Ingredients
 
Instructions
  1. Cook  cauliflower until tender.
  2. Add milk and coffee to cauliflower and puree.
  3. Melt chocolate either in a microwave or in a bowl over a boiling pan of water. Add agave or sugar and stir to combine.
  4. Combine cauliflower and chocolate mix
  5. Add flour, coconut, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon and hazelnuts. Stir well to combine.
  6. The batter will be thick, almost mousse-like. Grease a baking pan and spread the batter evenly into it.  Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200C for 40 minutes or until cooked.  
  7. Remove and cool before cutting.
