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.
A classic definition of brownie is a square baked dessert.
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.
As per en.m.wikipedia.org, a cake is a bread like food made from a batter that is usually baked. typical cake ingredients are flour, sugar, eggs, butter/oil, a liquid and leavening agents like baking soda or baking powder.
Cakes can be filled with fruit preserves or dessert sauces like pastry cream, iced with different types of icings and decorated with marzipan, piped borders or candied fruit.
Cake is often served as a celebratory dish on ceremonial occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, Birthdays (now a days for break ups also).
There are countless cake recipes with countless flavours.
