Oreo Brownie Cake

Hello everyone!

Wow, this is the first time I am baking in 2 weeks, oops! I just had my graduation prom on Tuesday and have my graduation ceremony on the weekend, so it has been a busy period. Nevertheless, this period is marked with many birthdays; yesterday was my friend’s 22nd birthday, so I figured it would be a great time to bake. Since I haven’t baked a cake in a while and my friend likes brownies, I decided to settle on a chocolate brownie cake recipe from BBC Good Food. However, I changed the recipe a little bit, so below you can see a comparison.

In regards to utensils, this cake only requires 1 saucepan, a whisk, 1 mixing bowl, and 2 small bowls for the egg whites and yolks. It takes around 15-20 minutes to prepare (depending on the cooling time) and around 45 minutes to bake at 180 degrees Celsius.

You should expect some small Oreo chunks (can you tell through the photo?) and the melted mixture to be like sludge. Then allow this to cool down; you can place it in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to speed up the process.When your mixture is no longer hot, transfer it into a mixing bowl, into which you should whisk in the three egg yolks. Next add the flour and vanilla powder. Finally, in a separate small bowl whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks and slowly incorporate it into the batter. You will have a fairly gooey batter, so don’t be surprised. Pour this batter into a 20-22 cm. cake pan lined with parchment paper and bake! 🙂

The result is a chewy chocolate cake, which you can eat with ice cream or powdered sugar. As you can tell, I used powdered sugar to have Z for my friend, Zayan. You will feel like you are eating a brownie but with a subtle Oreo taste, it’s delicious! It’s quite small and it didn’t rise a lot, but if you cut into small pieces, you can easily treat 10+ people, which is what I did. Let me know if you will try this cake out!

Until next time!

P.S. We were eating this cake past midnight, so excuse the terrible lighting and low quality photos.
