Today it is Valentine's Day, so here I have been baking some heart shaped brownies with addition of cherry sauce (leftover from Christmas). I added ½ a portion of cherry sauce into the brownie dough, and the other half can even be served as "topping" for the brownie.
It is not only the cherry sauce, which is a Christmas leftover. When I was tempering dark chocolate and yet some more dark chocolate, while I was making Christmas candy back in December, I collected the remaining tempered chocolate in a mixing bowl. Instead of throwing out the chocolate you can just as well use it in a chocolate cake.
You can bake this cake in a bigger baking tray or as I have done in smaller silicone forms. You only have to adjust the baking time according to the size of the applied baking form.
As starting recipe for this brownie I used this recipe on brownie with chili and nuts removing the nuts and chili and adding in cherry sauce instead of combined with a smaller adjustment of the amount of added sugar.
Valentine Brownie: - 1 bigger cake or several smaller cakes
- 250 g butter
- 165 g dark chocolate
- 4 eggs
- 200 g sugar
- 150 g (cake) wheat flour
- 3 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 250 g cherry sauce
- Heat up the oven to 180'C.
- Melt the butter and dark chocolate together in a medium size cooking pot over medium heat.
- Whip the eggs and sugar together to a foamy mass.
- Add in the wheat flour and cocoa powder, and whip until the mass is homogeneous.
- Gently stir the melted butter-chocolate mass into the cake dough.
- Fill the cake dough into various silicone forms.
- Bake the cake at 180'c for 20-25 minutes in the middle of the oven.
- Cool down the cake, before it is served.
