Ingredients

For the brownie crust:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon lowfat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

For the cream cheese frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fresh fruits such as berries, bananas, clementines , and kiwi
  • Apricot jelly for drizzling, optional

Instructions

To make the brownie crust:

  • Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-inch round cake pan with parchment paper and coat the paper and sides of pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, microwave chocolate and butter for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave in additional 30-second increments until a few pieces of chocolate remain. Stir until completely smooth. Pour into a large bowl.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, sour cream, chocolate syrup, egg, egg white, and vanilla until smooth. Pour into the large bowl with the chocolate and whisk until combined.
  • Fold in the dry ingredients until incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean with a few crumbs crumbs attached. Cool in the pan at least 1 hour. 

To make the cream cheese frosting:

  • While the cake is cooling, whisk together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Cover and chill until the cake has cooled.
  • Use a plastic knife to cut around the inside of the pan to loosen the cake. Remove from the pan and peal the parchment paper from the bottom. Arrange on a serving platter. 
  • Top with the cream cheese frosting. Arrange fresh fruit in a rainbow pattern or as desired. Cut and serve. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
