Vegan Brownies with Peppermint FrostingSubmitted by Amanda
To make the brownies:
Sift flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
In a separate bowl, combine water, milk and oil.
Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and mix. Stir in walnuts.
Pour batter into a greased 9"x9" pan and bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
To make the peppermint frosting:
Unwrap the peppermint candies and crush them into powder. The best way I found to do this was to use a large metal bowl and a glass bottle for pounding; placing the candies in a zipper bag and using a hammer on the countertop was not as effective because the sharp candy bits broke through the bag.
Heat the margarine and soymilk in a saucepan on low to melt the margarine.
Stir in the other ingredients. Pour on top of already-baked brownies.
Comments: This was adapted from a recipe in Vancouver magazine. The brownies are rather cake-like, not too dense.
