Recipe: Nutella Brownies with Soy Buttermilk Glaze

I meant to make Nutella Brownies with Salted Caramel Glaze but I ran out of butter! Who bakes without butter? -.- I was so afraid this would turn out to be a disaster because I didnt have butter and milk! So I ended up changing the entire recipe again and I cannot really give you the exact measurements because I went mostly by gut and how the texture of the batter was turning out..



  • 1 C. flour
  • 1 C. unsweeteend cocoa powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 t. baking powder
  • 2 sticks of butter, melted OR 2/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1 C. of sugar
  • 1 t. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C. Nutella

Preheat oven to 180C.  Line a square pan with baking paper if you hate washing up like I do.. =P

In one bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.

In another bowl, melt butter (if you used olive oil like me, there wont be butter to melt).  Add sugar & vanilla, and whisk until well-combined.  Add eggs one at a time, whisking well after each addition.  Add cocoa mixture and whisk until fully combined.

In another microwave-safe bowl, melt Nutella until smooth consistency and mix into batter.  Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake 25-30 minutes.

While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze.


  • 1/4C of milk/soy milk
  • 1/4 tsp of vinegar
  • 2 1/2C of icing sugar

Start making the glaze while the cake is baking in the oven. I did not have milk so I used soy milk instead and added 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar to make soy buttermilk glaze. Mix well until smooth consistency and set aside.

Remove cake from oven and allow it to cool but while it is still warm, use cookie cutter to cut out shapes that you like and dip them into the glaze mixture. Allow the glaze to cool (this is the super cool part! no pun intended) and it turns out like doughnut glaze. Pretty awesome :)

Happy happy birthday Hasheeee!
