Here is a little twist on your typical weed brownie – I call this my Blazing Brownie Cake! It’s not quite a brownie but not quite a cake either. It’s lighter and fluffier then a brownie, almost cake-like in texture but it’s pretty much the same ingredients and method of baking brownies.
It’s made with egg whites which also cuts down on the calories. I created this recipe while I was trying to lose weight for my wedding. I wanted to keep eating edibles while dieting but I needed to be able to watch my calorie intake. One serving only equals 173 calories!
You want to beat the egg whites until they are the consistency of the above picture. Nice and fluffy!
I love this recipe because you don’t need to use canna-butter (a.k.a. more calories) to make it. Just use my trusty canna-oil to whip these up in no time.
After adding the canna-oil, your egg whites will basically become egg greens!
Combine all your dry ingredients (except for the confectioner’s sugar) in a separate bowl.
You want to gradually stir the flour, sugar, baking powder and cocoa mixture into the egg greens.
Add a little at a time, beat it (or stir with a spoon) and then add some more.
Your batter will end up looking like this chocolate paradise!
Look at all that chocolate silkiness! I usually end up licking the bowl and rubber scraper after this because I simply cannot resist.
Don’t worry if the batter doesn’t spread to all the corners of the pan – it will even out in the baking process.
Place a knife or a toothpick in the center to make sure the brownie cake has baked thoroughly.
Sprinkle some confectioner’s sugar over the top using a mesh sieve. You won’t need more then a 1/4 cup. This also isn’t necessary but I think it makes the brownie cake look and taste more fabulous!
