Celebrate the season with a towering decadent Brownie Cake with Mint Chip Frosting!
However, I thought I’d try something new this season.
I’ve always wondered what it would be like to make a whole cake out of brownies, instead of spongy chocolate cake.
Imagine… Rich fudgy brownie layers stacked high with frosting in between.
This idea alone was enough to stir up excitement. Then the thought of mint chip frosting crossed my mind and it was all over.
So I took my best brownie bar recipe… (Not my fudgiest brownie recipe because I didn’t want the three layers to be overpowering, but the slightly lighter brownie recipe I use for layering.) and adjusted it to fit 3 cake pans.
It’s important to grease the cake pans well and cut a circle of parchment paper to fit the bottom of each pan before adding the brownie batter. You want to make sure you can flip the brownie cakes out in one piece.
Smooth the brownie batter out evenly in the pans. Then bake until just baked through, so the edges are crispy, but the center is moist and fudgy.
Note, I used all organic ingredients to make this Brownie Cake with Mint Chip Frosting. Even though it’s a sweet treat, I still want my baked goods to be clean, without overly processed ingredients and gmos.
Wholesome!™ Organic Cane Sugar is the perfect ingredient to substitute for processed “white” granulated sugar this baking season.
I also used Wholesome!™ Organic Powdered Sugar to make the frosting. In fact,Wholesome!™ offers a non-gmo, organic and fair-trade sweetener for all your recipes. I’m crazy over their raw honey and coconut palm sugar as well!
For the Mint Chip Frosting, I beat softened butter with powdered sugar until it was very smooth, then added vanilla and peppermint extract for flavor, and mini chocolate chips for the “chip” component of the frosting.
Slather each brownie cake layer with frosting and stack them high!
Brownie Cake with Mint Chip Frosting is a real winner this season. It’s rich chocolatey tones and dense fudgy texture are only elevated by the fluffy mint chip frosting.
You can make this cake several days ahead. Then cut it into thin or thick wedges, and watch your friends and family melt with delight!
Trust me, they will.
