Chocolate Chip Pecan Brownie Cake

The weekend is here! I'll be celebrating my birthday this weekend. I'm not sure what we'll do but hopefully something fun. What is your plan for the weekend?

I made these brownies last weekend and it was fabulous! I'll admit. I am not a huge fan of brownies, at least the really heavy and thick kind... I do like moist and almost cake-like brownies. Like this one. I added about 2 tablespoons of milk to the batter and it turned out so moist but still rich in flavor. This one is packed with my favorite ingredients; such as chocolate chips and pecans! You can replace the pecans with walnuts, if you'd like. My husband is allergic to walnuts. But the nuts and chocolate chips gave these brownies such a great texture and yummy flavor. I would definitely make it again. My husband loved it so much that he rejected my idea of taking the leftovers to his work for everyone. Apparently he didn't like the idea of sharing it with other people. :)
