mini black forest

A black forest cake is made out of tough layers filled with whipped cream and cherries.
I've decided to upgrade the cake, by making the layer out of brownie.
We actually don't quite like cherries and all sorts of jams in our cakes, so I made some cakes without any touch of fruits.
The two versions came out really good, but the fruitless one was the One for us.

Ingredients:
The brownie recipe is from here:
232 gram butter
226 gram dark chocolate
1 1\2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1\4 cups flour
1/4 Tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

For the filling:
Whipped cream
Sugar
Jam or conffiture
Grated dark chocolate

Preparation:
Heat oven for 175 degrees Celsius.
Start making the brownies:
Melt the chocolate and butter together.
Add sugar and eggs and stir for a minute.
Add the flour, salt and vanilla extract and mix until the mixture is well blended and smooth.
Grease a large squared pan with oil and spread the brownie mixture evenly.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until the brownies are steady , but toothpick inserted to the cake comes out a bit moist.
Take the brownies out of the oven and let it chill.
Cut the cake into circles, whipp the cream with sugar (my suggestion is to sweeten it with just one-two spoons) and start building the layers:
Take one circle, spread some conffiture in the middle, spread whipped cream and put another layer of brownie. Spread on top more of the conffiture, pipe whipped cream and garnish with grated chocolate and cherry.
