Try making a chocolate cake that you will like so much that you will make it again at home. This spongy cake has a recipe with an excellent flavor, quick, easy to make and with spectacular results.

Its texture is perfect, crunchy on the outside like a brownie but not so dense on the inside, as it has a very light cakey touch that makes it very juicy on the inside. It is one of those dessert recipes perfect for very very chocolatiers.

On the blog you can find a wide variety of chocolate cakes and brownies because we love this type of sweet. You have all kinds of them, from my sister’s favorite chocolate cake , the double chocolate cake , the white chocolate brownie or the easiest in the world, the Nutella brownie .

I recommend that you start with this one and then tell me the result, I’m sure it will become one of your favorite desserts.

Preparation of the brownie-style chocolate cake

  1. The first thing is to prepare the container where we are going to cook them. I used a 20 x 20 cm glass tray and baking paper.
  2. The size of the tray makes 9 generous servings of brownie-style cake, but it all depends on how thick we want it to be. If you want them smaller, use a larger tray.
  3. We line the tray and spread it with butter. Sprinkle the baking paper with chocolate powder.
  4. I haven’t used flour because the last time I made it I had small flecks of white flour left on the base.
  5. With this trick we solve this problem and on top of that we give this cake more chocolate flavor.
  6. We put the grated chocolate or small pieces with the butter in a bowl and put it in the microwave for 4 minutes at medium temperature.
  7. We take out and mix the mixture well with a whisk until there is a cream similar to chocolate cream .

Preparation of the chocolate cake cream

  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar until it becomes a foamy cream. We add the tablespoon of vanilla and the baking soda. We pour the chocolate cream into the previous bowl and mix well with the whisk.
  2. Sift the flour with a sieve and add to the previous mixture. We stir very well until we obtain a homogeneous cream paste.
  3. We pour the chocolate cream into the glass tray. I advise you to do it with a silicone spatula to take advantage of all the cream and so that nothing remains in the bowl.
  4. We break the walnuts into pieces and pass them through a little chocolate powder. We introduce them into the cream and with a fork we cover them well with the chocolate.

Preparation and final baking of the brownie-style chocolate cake

  1. We bake the brownie in the oven preheated to 180º C in the middle part for 35-40 minutes with the oven hot up and down (without air).
  2. As I mentioned in some other recipe, it all depends on the oven, always check with a fork that when you prick it it comes out dry.
  3. When it has been in the oven for 20 minutes, we cover it with a little aluminum foil so that the surface does not burn and the crust is perfect and crispy.
  4. In my oven the preparation time is exactly 40 minutes but in my mother’s it takes 30-35. You should not overdo it with time because you will end up with dry cakes that no one can eat.
  5. We let it cool on the tray and when it is cold we cut it into several portions.
  6. We separate them from the baking paper and present them on a plate with a little vanilla or chocolate ice cream , or with hot chocolate. For the most demanding chocolate palates.
