What’s The Difference Between Brownies And Cake?

Ever wondered what the difference is between brownies and cake? Let’s find out. At Cakehead, we know a thing or two about baking brownies. We’ve been having a crack at perfecting our recipes since 2004. We’re a fan of the classic recipe, but we’re also not afraid to try our hand with new, exciting ingredients to deliver new taste sensations.

It’s also true that not all brownies are created equal. Some are chewy, whereas others are more moist.

Cakes are soft and fluffy. In comparison brownies have a distinctive crunchy top layer and a denser, moist texture.

The shape is also different – brownie is generally cut into squares or rectangular slices, whereas cake is typically served round or square.

Are brownies healthier than cake?

That entirely depends on the ingredients. If it’s loaded with chocolate – which is typically the heart of a great brownie – then perhaps healthy wouldn’t quite be the right word. However, just like cake, they are a sweet, indulgent treat to be enjoyed as a dessert, snack or when you’re on the go.

What ingredients make a brownie?

Compared to cake, brownies use little or no raising agent. It’s a key recipe difference. As for the rest of the ingredients, chocolate is usually key – whether that’s dark, milk, white or even ruby. Some will even include nuts or fruit, such as hazelnuts and coconut.
