Hello everyone. I want to make a dress cake for my birthday, and I would love the cake to be brownies. So here is my question, can I bake brownies as a cake, will it get to the desired hight if cooked in a smaller pan. Please help me out here!, I'm not from Amerioca, so i don't know much aout brownies ..
Are you making your brownies from a box mix? If so, check and see if it has directions for "cake-like brownies". I don't have any boxes currently, but if I recall it was usually something as simple as adding an extra egg to the recipe.
Never done it, but even if they don't rise all that much, why not just make as many layers as you need. You wouldn't necessarily have to put filling in between all the layers...just stack them. If you're baking in a large pan I would put a metal flower nail in the center to make sure it cooks evenly so your edges aren't too hard (though that is my favorite part of the brownie...the corner!)
Brownies don't have leavening. They would be a chocolate cake with it. On a scratch recipe, there will be minimal rise.
Why not make a mud cake?
AU recipes w/pictures of mud cakes and American "mud" recipes:
(Recipe conversion help.)
FYI, boonenat's muds should be baked at 320 F, not 360 F.

Thanks so much for all of your advises guys. I just went ahead and made a caky using a muffin recipe, so I hope it's going to turn out fine. I;ll post the pitures of my finall cake later . Thanks again ..
