I missed a classic brownie so I started to do it and I wanted it more special I did a ganache cream and I put it on top. It goes without the ganache using just a simple chocolate glaze. It is sensational anyway and I do not think I will ever saturate from this cake, especially when I smell chocolate!

  8. Pour glaze over cooled cake cut in pieces.

  12. It's very fluffy and delicious! You can choose either to use glaze either chocolate ganache. it is up to you!
  13. Enjoy!
