Hot Fudge Brownies

1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup soy milk
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup brown sugar (white works too)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup hot water

Mix first five dry ingredients together, then add soy milk, applesauce, and vanilla. Mix well. Spoon or pour into an 8x8-inch greased pan.

Mix the remaining cocoa powder, brown sugar and hot water in a bowl until the sugar is dissolved making a nice chocolaty syrup. Stir it to mix well. Pour this over the brownie batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving or the chocolate will burn your mouth and be too runny otherwise.

The beauty of this recipe is that the chocolate syrup on the top of the batter will "fall" to the bottom of the pan while its cooking so you have a nice brownie on top, but a thick fudgy layer now on the bottom that has thickened up due to the flour.

This is by far my favorite brownie recipe in the world :)
