This week I had a special request to make this cake. It looks super yummy and simple. However, to be honest, this was my first recipe that I had trouble with. I got the recipe from Pinterest and followed all of the instructions but when it came to putting it in the oven, for some reason it wasn’t done by when it was time to take it out so it took a little longer than expected. Just like all of the other recipes I’ve made, its pretty inexpensive, I spent about $15 and it makes one loaf.
- 140 grams of dark chocolate (I used semisweet)
- 50 grams (1/4 cup) of unsalted butter
- 50 grams (1/4 cup) of brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 35 grams all-purpose flour
- Butter cake
- 120 grams (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
- 100 grams sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 50 ml fresh milk
- Grease and line a 10 cm x 20 cm (4×8) loaf pan with aluminum foil.
- Preheat oven to 350F
- To make brownie cake:
- Melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Remove and leave to cool slightly. Stir in brown sugar until blended.
- Add in egg, mix well. Fold in flour, mix until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
- To make butter cake:
- beat butter with sugar until creamy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- Fold in sifted flour and baking powder, alternately add in fresh milk, mix to form batter.
- Spread the butter cake batter over brownie, bake in over at 320F for 25-25 minutes or until cooked. (I used a toothpick in the middle of the cake to check if it was done.)
I would say this cake turned out pretty good, maybe not as delicious as I had anticipated it to be. If I would change anything it would be to maybe use a different kind of chocolate so it wouldn’t be to very different strong flavors in one. Also, as a side note, I don’t know why but when I made this cake i had it in the oven for way longer because it wasn’t fully done each time I would take it out. I probably had it in the oven for almost an hour. (because of this the cake was a little dry)
I would like to hear if anyone has better luck making this cake!
another delish dish down, many more to come!
