Prunes Brownie (Eggless)

My recipe is totally inspired from Jeena's recipe of Prune's pudding and I give her full credit for letting this idea pop in my mind. Few days back I read Jeena's Recipe of Prune Pudding where she mentioned benefits of prunes and I was totally ignorant with what all can we do with prune, This was the first time I brought prunes and kept in my fridge for long time as I didn't know what to do.

Then I read her recipe and I wanted to try that but I was running short of all ingredients reason being as am leaving for India soon so am trying to empty my kitchen and didn't want to buy new things. She used Couscous, Dark Molasses Sugar , Honey, Cocoa Powder, Light Brown Sugar, Tin Prunes , White Danish Bread, Almonds and dusting sugar and funny thing is I didn't have any of these things except prunes :D not even bread, though bread is one thing which is always in my fridge and as it was already dark so couldn't go out and get bread
But I wanted to try prunes so badly that came up with idea of brownies and believe me it turned out so well.
I bet Jeena's recipe would be great to try and I will definitly try that one when I reach India but here I would like to share recipe for brownies

1 1/2 cup semolina (suji/rava) - roasted
1/2 tin condensed milk (milkmade will do)
2-3 bars of dark chocolate (melted)
10 -12 prunes ready to eat ones
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup roughly chopped almonds and cashews
1/4 cup Butter - melted

Take roasted semolina in bowl and add condensed milk, melted chocolate, butter, baking powder and mix well. If you feel mixture is too tight you can add little bit of milk to soften it. Add prunes to it and mix well. Grease a baking tray and add this mixture to it. Now put the roughly chopped nuts on it. It will look like this.

Now pre-heat oven on 180 degree and then put the tray for baking. Bake on 180 degree for 10 mins and then on 150 degree for other 25 mins. You can test it with knife and if knife comes out clean it is done.
Cool it for 5 mins and take out
it's ready to relish :)

I already had my bite :D
P.S : You can read the health benefits of prunes on her blog

What a great looking brownie and eggless too...

I have never baked any form of cake without eggs *blush* Now you have me thinking at some point I must have a go at this. I found what seems a nice chocolate cake on the BBC Food site called Eggless chocolate cake by Giorgio Locatelli.

eggless foods are always good because when a vegitarial comes to your place you not able to serve a good food to them so I think this is a better idea for that time
