Dark Chocolate Brownie Cake with Strawberries

Chocolate Brownie is always a classic slice enjoyed by both kids and adults…

Today is World Chocolate Day 2020

How can I not??

I made a dark chocolate brownie cake sandwiched with fresh strawberries and topped with a silky ganache

Let’s get started

For The Brownie : You Will Need

  • 250g Butter
  • 250g Brown Sugar
  • 700g Dark Chocolate
  • 5 whole eggs
  • 2 tsp Instant Coffee dissolved in warm water
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts(optional)
  • Vanilla Extract
  • 200g All Purpose Flour
  • 2tbsp Cocoa powder

Step One : Melt the dark chocolate and butter in the microwave or double boil.Let this cool completely before mixing anything else in…

Step Three : Mix the instant coffee with warm water and vanilla extract.Add this into the chocolate mixture

Step Four : In a separate bowl, beat the eggs till they’re light and fluffy, add in sugar and beat till its nice and glossy(I don’t have proper lighting)

Step Five : Add this to the completely cooled chocolate mixture

Step Six : Sift the flour and Cocoa Powder before

Step Seven : And Lightly fold the flour into the chocolate mixture

Do not over mix

But make sure there are no traces of flour left behind..

Finally add in the chopped nuts and more chocolate chips!!!

Transfer into two 8″ Round lined and greased cake tins

Sprinkle some icing sugar just before putting into the oven

When it’s time to transfer the batter into the cake tin we have many fingers waiting for the last lick!!!

Bake in a preheated oven @180′ for at least 15-20 minutes or until you feel its ready for you, depending on how cooked you want your brownie to be…If you prefer it fudgy, then take it few minutes ahead!!!You will have the best gooey brownies!!!But today I wanted it abit firm because I was sandwiching them as a cake.

Let the cakes cool completely before assembling.

Make The Chocolate Ganache

Melt 400g Cooking Dark Chocolate and 1 cup Heavy Cream in a double boiler or in the microwave and your ganache is ready!!!It gets firm as it cools

Time To Assemble

Place the Brownie Base flat side up on the serving stand and spread the chocolate ganache

This step is optional but I had some home made strawberry and rhubarb jam so I spread a few spoonfuls of that and some fresh strawberry slices

Place the other Brownie on top

Spread and let the Chocolate Ganache Drip Over the Sides….Overflowing goodness

Decorate with Fresh Strawberries

How gorgeous does this look????
