National Baking Week: Our CTO's Vegan Brownie Recipe

This week is National Baking Week 2022.

Pyrex, supported by other baking brands, founded the awareness week to inspire people, of all abilities, to bake at home.

At Migrate, we're big fans of delicious, baked goods. In-light of National Baking Week 2022, Louis Holley our Chief Technology Officer (CTO) has kindly shared his Vegan Brownie recipe, which we hope you'll all enjoy!


• 300g plain flour

• 460g light muscovado sugar

• 160g cocoa powder

• 1tsp baking powder

• 1/2 tsp salt

• 220ml water

• 220ml vegetable oil

• 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

• 50g dark chocolate

• 80g berries (raspberries work best but you could try strawberries or blueberries too)

• 120g smooth peanut butter (optional)

• 2tbsp broken peanuts (optional)


• Preheat oven to 160 degrees

• Line a 20x30cm cake tin with baking paper, making sure some is hanging over the edge (makes it easier to remove from the tin)

• Add flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt to a food processor and whizz to combine

• Add water, oil, vanilla and 30g of peanut butter (if using)

• Blend until everything is well mixed (or use a large mixing bowl + an electric beater)

• Break the dark chocolate into squares and add it to the mixture

• Blend for another few seconds to mix in the chocolate

• Use a spatula or metal spoon to empty the brownie mix into the cake tin and smooth it out

• If using peanut butter, use a spoon to pour and drag swirls over the top of the brownie

• Push the berries (and peanuts, if using) randomly into the mix

• Put the tin in the hot oven and bake for 45 minutes (until cooked but squidgy in the middle - it will cool down to gooey perfection!)

• Take the tin out and let it cool to room temperature

• Cut brownie into portions, serve and ENJOY!
