Choc-mint Brownie Cake

Just everyone loves a sweet treat. This one is a favorite of mine to bake for three reasons. Easy to make. Indulgent. That minty smell in the kitchen while it is baking.

Simple indulgence. Refreshing!


  • 185g butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups (330g) caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cups (100g) plain flour
  • 1/2 cup (50g) cocoa powder
  • 50g after-dinner mints, chopped roughly

    Use a good cocoa powder brand. For the after-dinner mints, I used the dark chocolate-coated ones.


1.   Preheat oven to 180C degrees.

2.  Grease deep 22cm round cake pan and line base and sides with baking paper.

3.   In medium bowl, whisk together butter and sugar.

Whisk melted butter and sugar until well combined.

4.   Whisk in eggs one at a time.

Whisk egg well after each addition.

5.   Stir in sifted flour and cocoa.

Mix in sifted flour and cocoa powder well.

6.   Spread mixture into prepared pan. Push mints into mixture.

Push mints into mixture so that mints are covered by cake mixture. Make sure that they do not touch side of pan.

7.   Bake for about an hour or until just firm. Stand cake in pan for 5 minutes then turn into wire rack to cool.

8.   Serve dusted with icing sugar and cocoa.

Dust with sifted icing sugar and cocoa powder before serving. You can top it with berries of your choice.

As for me, this is how I like mine served…

... with fresh blueberries and a tiny dollop of whipped cream!
