Warm Double-Chocolate Brownie Cakes

READY IN: 1hr 22mins
Recipe by alligirl

From delish.com - Brownie meets cake in this fun dessert from Emily Luchetti, a cookbook author and the executive pastry chef at San Francisco's Farallon. She bakes the batter in muffin cups so the edges turn crispy and chewy like a brownie, but the inside becomes soft and fluffy like a cake. **The brownie cakes can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 days. Rewarm cakes before serving. Prep time includes cooling.

Followed this recipe right on down & had A GREAT TASTING CHOCOLATE FIX for 2 dedicated chocoholics! We did have several with some ice cream (which was nice), but they were also very satisfying served with a bit of room-temperature cream cheese! A nice new way to have your cake & . . . eat the brownie, too! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of the co-hosts in the current Pick A Chef]
