This is a fantastic cake to make anytime and for any occasion - you can make it different each time with the fresh fruit you serve with it or by adding a caramel or chocolate sauce. I have made this so may times now and it is regularly requested by family and friends.

This was DIVINE. My mum made this as a dessert for a family glamping holiday and it truly made the holiday. Please try this and love it and pass it on to all your friends like I fully intend to.

This brownie cake recipe has never ever failed me. I often add walnuts to the mix too (about 100g) to vary things up a little and sometimes put chunky chocolate bits in too. It's just a stunning recipe that can hold to quite a lot of experimentation.

this is so easy to make, to eat cold as little bites or as a well deserved dessert heated up in the oven with ice-cream 'gorgeous'.

Absolutely delicious, made it last night and there's not a single piece remaining! My boyfriend is not a big chocolate eater and yet even he had seconds! Great, easy recipe. Delicious.
