Dark Chocolate Brownie with Whipped Cream and Cherry Jelly

Thursday, December 14, 2017

This week we have for you a lovely dessert recipe! It's a Brownie, but not the simple one. Probably all of you ate a brownie, it's easy to make and tastes delicious. Our brownie is a Next Level Brownie! There are two more layers on the cake! First is sweet whipped cream and on top is a cherry jelly we made by ourselves!

Who doesn't love CHOCOLATE?! Do you know anyone? We don't! And our brownie is based on real chocolate. That's the first thing why you'll love it. Even while cooking and melting the chocolate the smell is sooo good, our mouths were watering. And it's the same each time we make this brownie. The cake is smooth and creamy! Pure perfection.

First brownie I ate was made by Domi. She made a fit brownie with avocado inside. Well, I didn't know and well, I won't taste it if I knew. But it was really good, very creamy and was melting in my mouth. We'll give you the recipe soon. The Brwonie from this recipe is classic one, with melted chocolate, flour and eggs. And it also tastes great.

Okay, but brownie can sound boring, is it? We had our brownie with ice cream sometimes. But it's still an easy way. We wanted to have a nice cake, with layers, based on brownie. It's much easier to make a brownie than a chocolate sponge cake - ... my last two attepts with chocolate sponge cake were 100% disaster :( but I'll try more times!

1. We have our brownie. 2. The CREAM - it's really easy - just whipped cream! We had heavy cream with sugar and just mixed it. It's fluffy and sweet - I love it!!! and 3. it's CHERRY JELLY !!! The best ! Well, I think this cake is maybe like an easy version of BLACK FORREST CAKE for begginers... okay. So going back to the jelly. We had canned cherries, because that's easier and you can buy them in every season of the year. They're always in a sauce which we used for jelly. And that's it!

Our family fall in love with this simple cake. You don't really put a lot effort here and you have a lovely cake with three layers. They fit great together. And remember about the chocolate here! It's the best part, who doesn't like chocolate cakes...?

It's a great recipe for everyday dessert, but also for a party with friend or family. I can bet, they will love it!
