Chocolate cake Baklava



It  does not get any better than this 


Crunchy layers of phyllo dough filled with fudgy cinnamon-spiked walnut brownie and soaked in sweet honey to become brownie baklava bliss!

Gooey cinnamon-spiked walnut cake or brownie  is baked between buttery layers of phyllo dough and finished off with a generous drizzle of honey for a decadent and oh so delicious dessert!



 Here’s a quick look at how easy it is to assemble!



 You just mix together the brownie batter and layer it between several sheets of phyllo dough, then cut it into squares and sprinkle with more chopped walnuts before baking it to buttery brownie baklava bliss!


mix the packet cake mix as per instructions

Roll phyllo dough out onto a work surface. Place a 9×13-inch baking dish in the center of the phyllo and cut around the edges with a sharp knife so that the phyllo sheets are shaped to fit the dish. Cover the phyllo with a damp cloth while you are assembling the baklava.
3. Melt 1 cup butter in a microwave safe bowl. Spread the bottom and sides of the 9×13-inch baking dish with some of the melted butter. Place a sheet of phyllo in the bottom of the baking dish and brush generously with the melted butter. Repeat with 6 more sheets of phyllo dough, brushing each sheet with melted butter.
4. Spread half of the brownie batter evenly over the 7 sheets of phyllo that are in the bottom of the baking dish. Layer 6 more sheets of phyllo dough, brushing each sheet generously with melted butter, on top of the brownie layer. Spread the remaining brownie batter over the middle layers of phyllo dough.
5. Top the second layer of brownie batter with the remaining phyllo sheets, brushing each sheet with melted butter. Using a sharp knife, cut the unbaked baklava into 24 squares. Brush with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until baklava is golden and starting to crisp on top. Remove from the oven and drizzle with 1 cup honey. Let baklava set for 3 hours then drizzle with remaining 1/2 cup honey before cutting and serving.
