This is a delicious and “handsome” brownie cake. You can easily bake it in your microwave, if it has grill function.
The good thing is that you need only basic ingredients for this cake. Here they are:
1 dark chocolate bar
3 table spoons of cacao powder
5 ounces of sugar
5 ounces of butter (you can use 1 cup of vegetable oil instead, it makes the recipe healthier)
1 tea spoon of baking soda
4 ounces of flour
1/2 cup of yogurt (optional)
You melt butter and chocolate together. Add the rest of the ingredients to this melted mix and stir. Done.
The mix should not be thick. It should be something like sour cream in its texture. Pour the mix into the baking pan and set it into your oven or microwave. It takes me around 20 mins to bake my brownie cake.
Now, once it gets baked, you can eat it just like that or you can make a heart cake out of this brownie cake. Here is my brownie heart recipe. I bake two of the above mentioned cakes. Then it would be good to have a heart shaped baking pan, but if you do not have one, you can make one.
I used two pieces of cardboard to make mine. Here is what I’ve done. I cut to cardboard strips and stapled them together to form an outline of a cardboard heart.
Then I placed it onto the large plate and used sticky tape to fasten it there. I crushed both brownie cakes and made crunches out of them. Then I made simple cream out of sugar, vanilla and sour cream. I add few table spoons of sugar to the sour cream and heated it up.
I make the first brownie crunch layer in the heart shape on the plate, covered it with some sliced bananas and kiwi and poured some cream on the top. Then I covered the whole thing with the second brownie cake crunch layer. And, again, added some fruits and cream.
Finally, I spread some crunch lefts over and used some edible cake decorations on the top. I left the cake in the cardboard shape for an hour to get soaked up with the cream and stick together. Then I removed the cardboard border and the brownie cake stayed in the heart shape!
