Wedges: * 2/3 c. flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled (150 mL) * 1/3 c. whole wheat flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled (75 mL) * 1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder (125 mL) * 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder (7 mL) * 1 Tbsp. instant coffee granules, divided (15 mL) * 1/8 tsp. salt (.5 mL) * 1/2 c. packed brown sugar substitute blend (125 mL) * 1/3 c. canola oil (75 mL) * 1/2 c. egg substitute (125 mL) * 2 tsp. vanilla extract (10 mL)
Cream: * 2 Tbsp. water (30 mL) * 1 tsp. instant coffee granules (5mL) * 4 oz. fat free whipped topping (115 g) * 1 c. fresh raspberries (250 mL) * 1 c. blackberries or blueberries (250 mL)
What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Coat a 9-in. (23 cm), nonstick spring form pan or cake pan with canola oil cooking spray. 2. Combine flours, cocoa, baking powder, 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) coffee granules, and salt in a medium bowl. 3. Combine sugar, canola oil, egg substitute, and vanilla in another medium bowl; mix well. Add sugar mixture to flour mixture, and stir until just blended. Batter will be very thick. Spoon into the bottom of the pan; spread evenly by coating the back of a spoon with cooking spray. Bake for 11 min. or until slightly puffed. (Mixture will not be completely cooked at this point, but it will continue to cook while standing without overcooking and drying out.) Place the pan on a wire rack, and let cool for 5 min. Remove the sides of the pan, and gently remove from bottom or leave on bottom and place on a serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature. When cooled completely, store in an airtight container at room temperature. 4. To make cream, combine water with 1 tsp (5 mL) instant coffee granules in a medium bowl, and stir until dissolved. Add whipped topping; whisk until a sauce consistency is reached. For thinner sauce, add 1-2 Tbsp (15 - 30 mL) water or milk. Refrigerate until needed. To serve, cut into wedges, spoon mocha cream on top, and sprinkle with berries.
Serving size: 1/8 brownie, 2 Tbsp. cream and 1/4 c. berries.
Fresh tip: The canola oil keeps this brownie moist for two days.
