Brownie Cake:

1 ¾ cups of flour

1 ½ teaspoons of salt

3 tablespoons of dark unsweetened cocoa powder

16 ½ ounces of dark chocolate, coarsely chopped

1 ½ cups of unsalted butter

2 ¼ cups of granulated sugar

¾ cups of packed light brown sugar

7 eggs at room temperature

3 teaspoons of vanilla extract


Start by putting your chocolate and butter in a bowl and heating until they are melted and smooth. Add your granulated and brown sugar and whisk until combined. You want your batter to be room temperature before you move on to the next step. Beat your eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl and then whisk them into your batter. Sift your flour, salt and cocoa over your batter and then fold the mixture together. Butter and line a 9 inch cake pan and pour your batter in. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 80 minutes.

For your frosting you’ll need:

1 cup of softened cream cheese

10 tablespoons of softened butter

1 ⅓ cups of brown sugar

2 teaspoons of vanilla

4 tablespoons of milk

1 cup of flour

6 cups of powdered sugar

1 ⅓ cups of mini chocolate chips


Put your cream cheese and butter in a large bowl and cream. Add your brown sugar and vanilla and beat until combined. Add your powdered sugar and whisk until smooth. Finally, add your milk, flour and chocolate chips and mix.

This cookie dough frosting is the perfect topping for this big and bold brownie cake.
