Fudgy Chocolate Brownie Cake

I saw the picture for this in last month’s issue of Delicious magazine and knew I had to give it a go.

Chocolatey, gooey and rich! I decorated mine with chocolate sprinkles and silver balls. This lasted for days, as you only need a small piece at a time – it’s very rich! It had that wonderful gooey consistency in the middle that made it brownie like, rather than just a cake.
