85g (3oz / 6 tbsp) butter, cut into pieces (I used salted, add a pinch of salt if using unsalted)
225g (8oz) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup (150g) sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8-1/4 tsp ground cardamom (adjust to taste, 1/4 tsp is quite strong)
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp vanilla bean paste, or vanilla extract, or scraped seeds from one vanilla bean pod
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/4 cup (35 g) all-purpose flour
About 2 tsp freshly ground pink peppercorns
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F), I’d recommend lowering it to 170°C if using fan-forced. Grease well and line the bottom and two long sides of a 20x30cm slice/brownie tin (can be substituted with a 20cm/23cm square cake tin). Let the baking paper hang over the long edges, it will make it easier to lift brownie out later. Grease the paper lightly as well.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, then add the chocolate and stir over low heat until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and vanilla bean until combined. Stir in the eggs one at a time until smooth. Add the flour and stir energetically for just a minute, until the batter loses its graininess, becomes smooth and glossy, and pulls away a bit from the sides of the saucepan.
Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle pink peppercorns evenly over the top of the mixture and then bake until the center feels almost set, about 27-30 minutes. Don’t overbake. Let cool completely in the pan before lifting out the brownies using the baking paper overhang. Slice into 16 equal pieces. Store in in airtight container (I kept mine in the fridge to keep it from going soggy), can be stored for 4 days or frozen for up to a month.
“Every year 18 of us get together for our annual ‘Heart Party’ in honor of Valentine’s Day. Besides sharing a favorite craft, we bring 18 cookies and share a favorite recipe. This was mine from last year. The recipe is written using white chocolate, but you can use dark chocolate instead, or use half white and half dark. I like to decorate mine with candy sprinkles too.”

Poke cake is just a simple, fun technique that you poke holes in a warm, baked cake then you fill it with most any type of filling you like. It makes a very pretty, dressed up or just fun cake rather than just ordinary. How much more fun is a yellow cake with chocolate pudding stripes, than just a plain old yellow cake?
The possibilities are nearly endless. I will offer you 30 of my favorite poke cake recipes here. This will give you enough ideas to experiment on your own.
