Eggless Brownie Chocolate Trifle

Eggless Brownie Chocolate Trifle

My 270th recipe, “Eggless Brownie Chocolate Trifle”, a decadent, and delicious dessert. While I have mentioned about making better for you choices while cooking, I never got a chance to talk about it in detail. I am not a person who believes in stereotype food practices. I try to incorporate as many better ingredients with my everyday cooking and that is it, nothing else fancy.

By now you would have seen that I have such a weakness for fried foods and sweets. While I do make them on a regular basis, I always make sure that I consume them in appropriate portions. Just because I make a big plate of murukku, doesn’t mean that everything is gone in a single day 🙂

 Portion control is an important aspect of eating better. That lets me enjoy everything I love, in moderate quantities, without having to worry too much. It is always better to treat yourself now and then, rather than starving yourself for a while and then binge eating later just out of craving.

This Chocolate fruit and nut trifle is a perfect example of what I have spoken above. While it is surely loaded with fats and sugar, little tricks of mine actually make it better for you and to keep your craving away. Trifle, in general, is a layered dessert made with layers of sponge cake, whipped cream and custard / pudding. This chocolate fruit and nut trifle uses a delicious eggless brownie as the base.

The first trick for portion control is to use a mini trifle bowl rather than a large one. One of those mini trifles were just sufficient for both myself and RK, making the whole recipe a 8 serving. Then comes the whipped cream. While you need whipped cream to make the trifle taste delicious by balancing the chocolate flavor, you can make it light by replacing a portion of it with yogurt.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a 8X8 baking pan with aluminium foil. Make sure to let the foil extend outside, so that it will be easier to pull out the brownie when ready. Slightly grease the pan.

  • Transfer the batter to the baking pan. Tap the pan to let the batter spread evenly. Bake for about 20 – 22 mins. Test by inserting a toothpick in the middle and it should come out clean. Pull out the brownie from the oven and leave it to cool completely.

Notes | FAQ

– Do not over beat the brownie batter. The brownie will turn out hard.
– Do not over bake the brownie. The brownie should be a little bit chewy and not dry.
– Do not over whip the cream. It will turn into butter.
– Keep the bowl used for whipping the cream and the beater in the freezer for 15 mins, before whipping. It helps to get good whipped cream.
– The yogurt should be thick and fresh. Sour yogurt will spoil the flavor of the whipped cream.
– Flax seed meal + water is a substitute for eggs. In case not vegetarian, you can replace with 2 medium sized eggs.
