If you are a big fan of cake then you should definitely try the chocolate brown cake. Just like actual chocolate, this looks mouthwatering and is delicious. You will have a hard time saying no to an extra serving. Here’s a chocolate brownie cake recipe that you can try out:

Ingredients
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 box fudge brownie mix
4 large eggs
1+1/4 cup water
1 cup oil
Ganache
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 (12oz) bag semi sweet chocolate morsels

Instructions
Cake
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a bundt pan with bakers spray or use the butter/flour method.
Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl and whisk for 2 minutes or until lumps are mostly gone.
Pour batter into prepared bundt pan and bake for 50-55 minutes.

When done baking, remove cake and allow to cool in pan for up to five minutes. Carefully turn cake out onto a cooling rack and cool for 30 minutes more.

Ganache
Place heavy whipping cream in a large microwave safe bowl and heat for about 2 minutes. You want the cream to be just boiling.

Carefully pour chocolate morsels into cream… it may rise up and bubble and this is ok.
Let sit for 5 minutes. Whisk the chocolate and cream until shiny and smooth, about 1 minute.
Pour over cooled cake and serve.

Health benefits
Chocolate is often thought to be unhealthy especially when eaten in large quantities, but this is not entirely true. In fact, it does come with its own set of benefits. This means that chocolate brown cake is good for you in several ways, for example:

It lowers your chances of getting strokes and other heart issues

Chocolate brownie cake has some cocoa content which is known to increase the level of good cholesterol and lowers the bad cholesterol (LDL) in your body. It also improves the circulation of blood in your body.

It reduces stress levels in pregnant women

Chocolate cake is good for pregnant women. Having a slice of chocolate brownie cake reduces the stress levels of both the mother and the unborn baby.

Chocolate brownie cake keeps us in a good mood

The chocolate in this cake contains methamphetamine which is the same chemical produced by our brains when we fall in love. It’s known to help our brains release the much-needed good endorphins that help our bodies feel even better.

Chocolate brownie cake helps in brain function

Interestingly, studies show people who eat a piece of chocolate cake in the morning work better. The chocolate brown cake improves your brain function and memory.

Some tips to making sure your chocolate brownie cake is even more amazing include:

  • Ensuring that your ingredients are at room temperature. That includes the eggs, the oil, and the cream. While it’s normal to keep your cake ingredients in a refrigerator before you get to use them for your cake, the results won’t be as great if they are taken out and used directly while they’re that cold.
  • Another simple tip is to pat your baking pan a few times before you put it into the oven. This will allow you to get rid of any bubbles and will give you a more even cake surface which always looks great.
  • Avoid opening your oven door while you bake even though there’s understandably that temptation and curiosity that makes you want to see how the chocolate brownie cake is coming along.
  • Before you pour the ganache or just anything on the cake, ensure that it’s completely cool.

So there you go, a wonderful chocolate brownie cake recipe, some nutritional facts and a few tips to ensure you’re even happier with the result. Try this cake recipe sometime and you will truly enjoy your dessert.
