Vegan brownies with optional dulce de leche swirl
choc chip cookies. The remainder has sat in the fridge for a few weeks. I simmered the condensed milk for 10-15 minutes and it got so chewy that I had to warm it up to actually spread it on the brownies. But in the edge result it just added a small amount of chewiness and sweetness to the top of the brownies. I had meant to salt it but forgot.

I am sending these to Jibber Jabber for Love Cake and Tin and Thyme for We Should Cocoa.

Adapted from Pollen on food.com
2 cups plain white flour, divided
1 cup water
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3⁄4 cup cocoa powder
1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
1⁄2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup coconut condensed milk (optional)
Preheat oven to 180 C and grease and line a 28 x 18 cm (11 x 7 inch) slice tin.
Cook 1 cup water and 1/2 cup flour over low heat until you have a gluey paste that holds its shape. Stir in sugars, salt, cocoa and oil to make a glossy mixture. Stir in remaining 1 1/2 cup flour and baking powder, then chocolate chips (if using). Tip into prepared tin and press out to fill tin evenly. I used my hands to smooth some of it down.
If you wish to use some dulce de leche - I slowly cooked some coconut condensed milk for about 5-10 minutes. Mine was setting to toffee rather than a sauce so I think let it darken but it does not need to coat the spoon too much. Dollop over unbaked brownie and swirl a little with knife and then smooth down as much as possible. (Maybe some salt in the dulce de leche would work.)
Bake for 25 minutes. a skewer should come out cleanly when inserted in the middle but I looked more at the top being drier and the edges feeling cooked and the middle a little softer but not uncooked. Cool in tray and then cut into small squares.
