Grandma’s Chocolate Brownie Cake

Written by zakrezki1

Unadorned, but it’s a chocolate delight! The combination of crispy puff cakes, two chocolate creams, but different in taste, and the cherry in the cake, the piquancy of the sourness … it’s very tasty! The cake is very soaked and delicious, especially if eaten, it will soak well.

4. Taking out of the refrigerator one by one, roll out each ball as thin as possible, larger than the required diameter. Roll out on parchment, sprinkle with flour.

Custard cream.

Oil cream.
