This review is for the cake only. Very good! The cake is moist and really does taste like a brownie. I substituted 3 tablespoons baking cocoa with 1 tablespoon of canola oil for each 1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate. I made my favorite chocolate frosting recipe to top it off.

Triple Layer Brownie Cake
1-1/2 cups butter
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
FROSTING:
16 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar, optional
2 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each), shaved
            
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla, flour and salt.  

Pour into three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

For frosting, melt chocolate in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Gradually stir in cream and sugar if desired, until well blended. Heat to a gentle boil; boil and stir for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; transfer to a large bowl. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until mixture reaches a pudding-like consistency, stirring a few times. 

Beat until soft peaks form. Immediately spread between layers and over top and sides of cake. Sprinkle with shaved chocolate. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 16-20 servings.
