This is called the pan brownies for the original recipe using butter sticks are melted in a pan. Texture brownie-like cake is more of a fudge.

Here’s how:
Mix dry ingredients in one bowl:
• 1/2 cup organic wheat flour
• 1/3 cup cocoa
• 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/4 teaspoon salt

In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients:
• 1/2 cup plum porridge (4 oz. Jar plum perfect baby food)
• 2/3 cup sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 2 organic or free range eggs (or an equivalent amount of egg substitute such as Egg Beaters)

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Add 1 ounce of liquid margarine. Stir well, Entered into 8 x 8 inch square pan. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until the edges look dry and begin to pull away from the pan.

• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 cup fat-free egg substitute
• 1 jar (10 oz.) The sugar-free raspberry preserves (or apricot or cherry)
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
• 1 cup flour

Grease thoroughly 9×13 inch size pot with nonstick cooking spray. (Note: It seems to me that a thorough sprinkle with a little flour will work instead.) Then set aside.

With an electric mixer, combine the sugar and cocoa. Gradually pour in the egg substitute and raspberry jam, beat on low speed until the sugar is no longer rough.
Add the vanilla, salt and almond extract and beat briefly to mix. Combine flour and baking soda and stir with a wooden spatula. Stir well

Bake in oven heated to a temperature of 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes. The brownies should be slightly underbaked but not runny in the middle. Let cool and cut into 2×2 “squares. Makes 24 pieces.

Due to jam a bit sticky, brownies rather difficult to cut.
To reduce sticking, wetting the blade between each cut or partially freeze brownies before cutting. (Note: this is assuming you are able to wait until they cool to cut them, rather than scooping some out with a spatula!)
