This delicious small batch individual  chocolate brownie cake recipe is perfect for the two person household. I usually don’t bake full dessert recipes because I really don’t want such a large amount of sweets in the house. 

These individual serving  brownie cakes have the right amount of sweet and gooey.  Great topped with whipped cream, fresh fruit, an extra drizzle of chocolate, or ice cream.

Tips

This recipe makes four individual brownie cakes, I use these 5-ounce ramekins made by Aplico.  They are bit more expensive and very well made.

Always check your accuracy the oven temperature, it does make a difference.  I use the CDN Oven Thermometer to check my temperature before baking my desserts.

When mixing the batter first mix the dry ingredients, then in a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients before combining.  Here is a good post about separating the ingredients from  Our Everyday Life blog.

When filling the ramekins leave a little room at the top so they don’t spill over.

How to tell if the brownie is done?

Insert a toothpick into the middle and if you want a fudgy brownie, under bake them a bit.  The toothpick will come out with just a few crumbs stuck to it.  If you want a more cake like brownie texture the toothpick should come out clean.

Two ways to freeze brownie cake

If you plan on eating in a week or so, simply tightly wrap the entire ramekin in plastic wrap and place in the freezer.

For longer storage or if you just want your ramekins ready for the next recipe; freeze for about an hour in the ramekin then remove the brownie by running a knife around the edge to easily remove the brownie from the ramekin.  Wrap the brownie tightly with plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag.

When ready to eat, thaw and warm in the microwave in 10 second intervals until ready.  

How do you divide an egg?

To divide a full egg, crack the egg into a small bowl and lightly beat. One large egg is about 4 tablespoons.  If the recipe calls for 1/2 eggs then use 2 tablespoons.

The remaining egg can be frozen for later use in another small batch recipe, add just a pinch of salt and freeze in an ice cube tray. when frozen pop it out and place in a freezer bag. To use, let thaw in the refrigerator. The thawed egg is fine to use in a cooked dish.
