Fudgy Chocolate Cake ‘Brownies’ (recipe)

Fudgy Chocolate Cake Brownie

I adore brownies, and I definitely don’t make them often enough. Although there are now dozens of variations on the brownie theme (even blondies), for emotional satisfaction I still find that nothing surpasses the simple all-chocolatey goodness of the original.

This simple recipe from Everyday With Rachael Ray has stood the test of the time as I have made it several times since first posting it in this blog way back in 2007. It calls for very simple ingredients (most of which should already be in your pantry) and takes no time to put together. Cleanup is minimal and the taste is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Amazingly enough, these brownies only get better the longer they sit. Fresh out of the oven they are light, airy, and oh so chocolatey… but as they sit they slowly get moister and fudgier… oh the decadence. Give it a try, you won’t regret it! :)

Even though this recipe calls for 4 serving sizes, as brownies I cut the cake sheet into 12 portions and found these portions much more acceptable. If I was entertaining though I would defnitely serve the quarter portions, especially with an additional dollop of vanilla icecream and a drizzle of chocolate or caramel sauce. MMMMMM :D No one would ever guess that it took you practically no time to bring together :)

Recipe By: Everyday With Rachael Ray
Serving Size: 4

Ingredients:

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 275°. Butter and flour an 8-inch square baking pan. In a medium saucepan, melt the chocolate chips with the milk and heavy cream over low heat. Add the butter and sugar and stir until smooth. Remove from the heat.

    I’m making these now, the picture was too good to pass up. I still have tons of Brazil Nuts sitting around from Christmas so I’m thinking of making a turtle-like topping for the top. I love cake-like brownies. Thanks for posting this! <3
