Vegan MOFO - Day 29 - Zucchini Brownies

My friend Dana (no relation to the brownie author)- from the Day 28 post - has been asking for this recipe for months. Her kids went wild for it. I found a non-vegan version of this recipe years ago (back in 2000) on an oddball site. I have to give credit for the original recipe to Dana Resop. I cannot find the original recipe online anymore. I thought I had lost it in the great recipe binder abyss. I'm thrilled that I not only found the original, but I had actually made notes on how I veganized it! This is a rich, moist delicious brownie that will win you brownie points (pun intended) with your friends and family.

Dana's Zucchini Brownies

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Earth Balance vegan butter
1/2 cup silken tofu
1 tablespoon applesauce

1/4 cup cocoa
