Brownie Cake

We really enjoyed Cookie Week here at Lucy Jane’s and we hoped you liked it, too. With all the holiday baking going on, my sweet tooth is in full effect! How about you? So imagine my delight when my mom brought over this Brownie Cake for dessert when we all got together for a family dinner. She has been making this for years, and it is one of my all time favorites. It is moist and chocolatey and definitely a crowd pleaser. You will be loved and adored if you bring this to your next family dinner, I promise!

  1. This looks amazing. I love brownies and now brownies in a cake-like form, perfect. I wonder if we could take my Kahlua Brownies and adapt them to this recipe. Anyway, glad I stopped over form Skip to my Lou!
