Recipe's preparation

    Brownie Cake
  1. Preheat Oven to 160 degrees

  2. Grease and line the base of your baking tins with baking paper

  3. Add Water, chocolate and butter into TM bowl and heat at 50 degrees / 3 minutes / Speed 1

  4. Add sugar, plain flour, self raising flour, cacao powder and eggs. Mix on Speed 3 for 30 seconds or until well combined.

  5. Divide the mixture evenly over 3 baking tins, then place the chopped Cherry Ripe pieces over each tin. 1 bar per tin should be enough. 

  6. Bake brownie layers for 20-25 minutes each or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Do not remove brownie cake from pans and allow it to cool for at least 30 minutes.

  7. Cherry Ripe Layers
  8. Add glace cherries, condensed milk, red food colouring and coconut to TM bowl and combine on Speed 4  for 30 seconds

  9. Layer cherry ripe mix evenly over 2 of the Brownie layers (leave the 3rd brownie cake as it is). Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cherry ripe layer is just set. Allow to cool completely before removing from the tins.

  10. Chocolate Filling
  11. Add dark chocolate and butter to TM bowl. Heat at 60 degrees for 2-3 minutes until chocolate is completely melted and glossy.  

  12. Assembly, Ganache and Decorations
  13. Place your first cooled layer of brownie and cherry ripe on serving plate and cover cherry layer in the chocolate filling. Repeat with the second brownie/cherry layer. Then finally top with the plain brownie cake that remains. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  14. Chop 2 cherry ripe bars on triangular angles and set aside for decoration.

  15. Add Dark chocolate and sour cream to TM Bowl. Melt at 50 degrees for 2-3 minutes or until completely melted and combined.

  16. Dip your stemmed cherries into ganache and set in fridge until ready to put on top of cake.

    Pour remaining ganache over cake and spread evenly to cover it entirely.

  17. Top cake with cherries and cherry ripe pieces. Cake should be stored in fridge and can be made up to 4 days in advance.

This cake is the cover of the November 2014 Taste Magazine. I have altered it slightly and adapted to be made in the Thermomix.

This cake is meant to be made using 3 x 20cm round cake tins. But, I actually used 2 slice tins I had and baked the plain brownie layer last. One recipe batch, yielded 2 tower like cakes.

    Awesome cake! I made it as a normal 3 layered cake, using 20cm round cake tins. Came out great and one I'll definitely make again for a birthday celebration.
