Heavenly Brownie Cake

11 August 2009

The other evening, I attended a Tupperware party with a large bunch girlfriends.

I already own quite a few food containers, so for me the evening was about chatting to the girls and playing with my new camera lens (which is actually 30 years old and borrowed from a friend. Thanks Mal!)

The party host made a chocolate brownie cake for us while we chatted. As I watched her put the ingredients together, it seemed so simple that I was quite uncertain whether it would taste any good.

But oh my, it was absolutely heavenly!

Brownie Cake Recipe

250 gms butter
1 ½ cups of sugar
¾ cup cocoa
3 eggs
1 ¼ cups plain flour
½ tsp vanilla optional
a handful of “Rollos”- a chocolate-coated caramel sweet/lolly/candy. I’m sure anything similar will do.

1. Slowly melt butter and sugar in a saucepan, on low heat, until sugar is dissolved.

2. Stir in cocoa, flour, eggs and vanilla. Mix well.

3. Pour into well greased pan. Throw in the “Rollos”.

4. Put into 180C (preheated) oven for 25 minutes.

5. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Cut up brownie while warm.

6. Dust with icing sugar. Serve while warm, with whipped cream.

This recipe was given to me by the delightful Tupperware demonstrator, Sharon Cherny. Thanks Sharon!
