The “Brake” Recipe

Posted by on Dec 10, 2012 in Recipes | 0 comments

What’s brake, you ask? It’s a combination of a brownie and a cake- that’s apparently what you create when you forget to add baking powder and baking soda to your recipe! It was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup white, granulated sugar
1 cup cold milk
1/4 cup Nestle chocolate powder
1/4 cup Ghiradelli unsweetened dark chocolate powder
3 large eggs
1 and 1/4 sticks softened butter


*pre-heat oven to 350°F

1. Cream butter and sugar with your mixer, blending until the consistency is very smooth and creamy
2. add eggs to the butter mixture and mix until completely smooth
3. add milk and mix on low until blended into the butter mix
4.mix chocolate powders together in a separate bowl and then pour the combined mixture into the butter/milk/egg mix. Beat on high until completely blended in
5. slowly add flour into the mix, blending well after every addition

Pour mixture into any pan you’d like to use. With this recipe, I made 12 cupcakes and an 8×11 thin layered cake (like a brownie)!

For cupcakes:
Pour mixture 2/3 full into the baking cups. Bake for 20 minutes.

Happy Baking!!
