Brownie Butter Cake

I baked this cake ages ago but just did not have time to post. It all happened on a day when my kids started hogging a store bought cake that some one had dropped off in our house. Me being someone who loves baking, just could not stand to watch them eat store bought cakes! Hence I set off to bake something for them and I had to satisfy both of them. My son likes chocolate and my daughter does not prefer chocolate so I made this cake and it worked like a charm!! 

Brownie Butter Cake

This is truly a delicious cake with the best of both worlds! I love brownies, they are my weakness and who doesn't like a perfectly delicious butter cake! To have them both in the same piece of cake is simply divine! The brownie in this cake is so fudgy, just the way I like it and the butter cake is soft and moist making this combination utterly delicious!

For the brownie
  • Dark chocolate - 140 gms
  • Unsalted butter - 50 gms  (about 1/4 cup)
  • Sugar  - 50 gms (1/4 cup)
  • Egg - 1
  • All purpose flour (maida) - 35 gms (1/4 cup)
  • Instant coffee powder - a pinch
  • Salt - a pinch
For the butter cake
  • Unsalted butter - 120 gms ( about 1/2 cup)
  • Sugar - 100 gms (1/2 cup minus 1 tbsp)
  • Eggs - 2
  • All purpose flour (maida) - 120 gms (1 cup)
  • Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Milk - 50 ml (3.5 tbsp)
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Salt - a pinch
Brownie Butter Cake

1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line an 8*4 inch loaf pan. I used a 9*5 inch loaf pan.
2. For the brownie - Melt the chocolate and butter and coffee granules in a sauce pan or microwave. 

3. Remove and add the sugar and let it dissolve. Set aside to cool.

4. Add the egg and vanilla extract and whisk well.
5. Sift in the flour and salt. Fold gently.

6. Pour in the prepared pan and bake for 15 mins. 

While the brownie is baking let's prepare the butter cake batter.

7. For the butter cake - Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy.

8. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat well.

9. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt. Fold gently. Alternately add the milk and mix to make a smooth batter.

10. By now the brownie would be half done. Remove the pan from the oven (after 15 mins) and pour the butter cake batter over the brownie. Spread well and spread quickly.
11. Reduce the temperature to 160 degrees C and bake for 25-30 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.

12. Remove and let cool for 10 mins in the pan and then remove from pan.
13. Slice and enjoy!

Brownie Butter Cake

1. I used granulated white sugar. I measured the amount needed and then pulsed it in the blender before using.
2. When you add the butter cake batter to the hot, half cooked brownie, the butter cake batter will start melting. Don't worry, just be quick and spread the butter cake batter and put it back in the oven.

Until next time,

  10. Hi if instead of egg in the cake i add 1/4 cup of thick curd then do i have to increase b.powder also or add b.soda. plz suggest. Thnkx

    1. I don't think you need to increase BP. You can try a direct switch although I have never replaced eggs in this recipe. So I'm not sure how well it will work.

  11. This looks delicious, and I am looking forward to trying it soon! Can this be converted to an egg free recipe? Please advise. Many thanks

    1. Hi Payal, thank you! I have never tried substitutes so can't vouch for it but you can try flax meal or yogurt.
