Halloween calls for some messy baking right?! Well today’s recipe has got that covered. My Vegan Spider Web Tray Bake will get you melting chocolate, playing with food colouring and generally getting messy!
I chose to make this recipe because it’s accessible to many. I have several friends who can’t have dairy for various reasons and wanted to make something they could enjoy too. This Vegan Spider Web Tray Bake is super tasty and wonderful for sharing.
- 200g Plain Soya Yogurt (I used M&S)
- 200g Vegan margarine spread
- 200g Caster sugar
- 200g Self raising flour
- 1tsp Bicarb
- 1tsp Baking powder
- 1tbsp Cocoa powder
- 140g Vegan margarine spread
- 280g Icing sugar, sieved
- 1tsp Vanilla essence
- 100g Vegan dark chocolate for melting
- Spooky decorations
- Preheat the oven to 160C. Grease and line a square baking tin.
- Sieve the flour, bicarb, baking powder and cocoa powder into a bowl.
- Beat the sugar and vegan spread until fluffy. Then add in the vegan yogurt in and beat again.
- Fold in the flour mixture and then pour into the tin.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes, until a crust has formed but still gooey inside. Allow to cool fully before decorating.
- Beat the icing, vegan spread and vanilla essence together until soft and creamy.
- Spread over the top of the brownies.
- Melt the chocolate over a saucepan (bain-marie), let it cool sightly, then pour over the top of the buttercream in 'blobs.'
- Draw a knife up and down the buttercream/chocolate to give a feathered 'spider web' effect.
- Decorate with spooky decorations and enjoy!
This was such a fun bake, but I made such a mess. So to clear up the mess of baking I had the help of Marigold, who’s rubber gloves I have always sworn by. They protect my irritation prone hands from washing up liquid as well protecting my nails! It’s also great to see that Marigold are branching out to other products too. The Oops Away wipes were perfect for clearing up my bright red food colouring! I loved that the gloves matched this too – haha!
