 Brownie and  Cake

Brownie and cake…are they different? But they look more or less similar. Isn’t Brownie a chocolate cake only?

The answer is No.

Brownie and Cake, though look similar but are different.


Chocolate Brownie


A classic definition of brownie is a square baked dessert.

It is a cross between a cake and a soft cookie in texture and comes in a variety of forms.

Depending on its density, it may be either fudgy or cakey and may include chocolate chips, nuts, or other ingredients. They usually have a dry and somewhat crispy top layer with a soft and sometimes gooey body.
