Brownie Butter Cake

Brownie butter cake – thick brownie and rich butter cake combined into one decadent and to-die-for cake! Bake the brownie first and then the butter cake.

I am so happy that my contributor CP Choong is back with more sinfully delicious baking recipes. In this post, she is sharing an utterly gorgeous, rich, buttery, and decadent Brownie Butter Cake recipe, adapted from Kevin Chai’s “I love Butter Cake Too 2” cookbook.

CP Choong and I went to high school together, but we didn’t know each other when we were in high school. Our high school is the most famous Chinese girls school in Penang, attended by hundreds of students in each grade. Fast forward to present time, CP and I finally met, through a mutual good friend, when I was back in Penang earlier this year. I am just so happy that she is now my contributor and I can share her wonderful baking recipes with you. She is an excellent baker and also a very talented photographer. I absolutely love her food photography and her baked goods are truly top-notch.
