the sweetest holiday

I love making, baking and creating especially this time of the year. The sweet warm smell of cinnamon always sends me over and I can't help but indulge in sweets. I'm so excited this year because I love trying and sharing new recipes and projects so why not share them with all of our readers. Get ready for some yummy, scrumptious desserts coming each week from our cozy kitchen to yours, along with fun and easy projects to help make a great Christmas!
Earlier this week Kensi asked to make Christmas cookies, but since I didn't have the dough made yet we agreed to make a decadent chocolate brownie cake. Kensi thought it was pretty cool to make a brownie because she has a plush dog named Brownie. So during the entire time baking she was talking up a storm about how much Brownie was going to love his brownie. The mind of a three year old, I love it! 
So we decided to call this recipe Kensi's Brownie Cake. It's very simple and fool-proof to put together. It has a fudge like texture that's perfect when paired with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream. I really love that the recipe can fit anyone's chocolate preference. If you like it sweeter use a milk chocolate or if you love dark chocolate go for a chocolate that has a higher cocoa content. Personally, we are dark chocolate kind of people so semi sweet chocolate chips works great for our little fam! 

Kensi's Brownie Cake
 1/2 cup Unsalted Buttwr, room temperature 
1 cup White Sugar
2 large Eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/8 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
5 oz Semisweet Chocolate Chips
Powdered Sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 inch cake pan with foil. Use a pastry brush and lightly butter the foil. 
In an electric mixer, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar and beat until blended. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat again until blended. Add the salt and 1/4 cup of flour, beat well. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour in two batches, beating after each addition. Scrape the bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is combined. 
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler set over simmering water. Remove from heat and let cool just slightly. Add the chocolate Ito the batter and mix well pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, smoothing out the top. 
Bake the cake for 20-25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack. Once cooled remove cake from pan and dish with powdered sugar. Slice into wedges for serving. 

Wishing everyone a sweet Friday Eve!
