Chocolate Caramel Browines (Egg Less)

By Harini
I read this recipe in the back pack of demerera sugar I purchased recently.Until now I have never seen or tasted a brownie from a bakery and I don't know how a brownie is supposed to be :)Now with this point emphasized here I am presenting my version of egg less brownie adapted from the recipe I read.Accoriding to wiki  "A chocolate brownie is a flat, baked square or bar developed in the United States at the end of the 19th century and popularized in both the U.S. and Canada during the first half of the 20th century. The brownie is a cross between a cake and a cookie in texture. Brownies come in a variety of forms. They are either fudgy or cakey, depending on their density, and they may include nuts, frosting, whipped cream, chocolate chips, or other ingredients". The main difference between cake and brownie turns out to be that brownies should have a very flat and crackled top unlike cakes.these are also dense and very gooey inside and texture is more heavy than a cake.

Chocolate  caramel browines (Egg less)Notes:
1.Caramel syrup was not mentioned in the recipe I referred.I just added as I had it with me and it tasted very good and we were able to feel the taste.
2.I think I over whisked the mixture and also baked it for few extra minutes.I think that may be the reason for raised top of my brownies.
3.Adding chocolate chips was also just my idea,I added for extra chocolatey flavor.
4.I tried dusting with icing sugar but could not do it in a uniform way
