Recipe by Brittney_B

This rich cake has a chewy crisp crust just like a brownie. It's soft melt-in-your-mouth centre is speckled with delicious chocolate chips and walnuts making it a perfectly indulgent treat. The long baking time is what gives this cake its crunchy outer crust and moist centre so don't let it put you off! For a twist, halve the baking time and try using muffin tins for smaller portable treats.
