Mini Brownie Butter Cake


Mini Brownie Butter Cake Recipe

Makes 12 cupcakes | Prep Time: 30 minutes | Bake Time: 35 minutes
Adapted and modified from Kevin Chai – I Love Butter Cake Too2



140g (5oz) Dark Chocolate (broken into pieces)
50g (¼ cup) Butter
50g (¼ cup) Brown sugar
1 Egg
35g (¼ cup) All purpose flour

Butter cake:

120g (½ cup) Butter
100g (½ cup) Sugar (I reduced by 1 Tbsp)
2 Eggs
120g (1 cup) All purpose flour
2g (¼ tsp) Baking powder
50ml (3 ½ Tbsp) Fresh milk


Lightly grease a muffin pan. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 180C/350F.

To make brownie, melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Remove and leave to cool slightly. Stir in brown sugar until blended.

Add in egg, mix well. Fold in flour, mix until well combined. Spoon a heap tablespoon of batter into each cavity of your muffin pan. Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Remove and let cool while making butter cake.

To make butter cake, beat butter with sugar until creamy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Fold in sifted flour and baking powder, alternately add in fresh milk, mix to form batter.

Spoon the batter over brownies, about 2/3 full. Bake in oven at 180C/350F for 15 minutes or until cooked.

Let cool completely, serve it plain or garnish with fresh fruit, or drizzle with chocolate sauce as desired.

Cook’s Notes:

1. I am using conversion chart for this recipe.

2. This is the same recipe as Brownie Butter Cake. Since the size of the cake has changed to cupcake, thus the temperature and baking time has changed accordingly.

3. If mini cheesecake pan is used, this recipe yield about 18 cakes.

    What kind of baking pan do you use for these minis? Your photos are gorgeous but muffin pans would not look as good.

  2. Kellie says:

    This looks really yummy. What is it that you sprinkled on top? I didn’t see it in the list. =/

    Hi. Wanted to know, after baking the brownie, for the butter cake part,
    do I need to change my heat source to TOP as oppose to normal BOTTOM heat only?

  6. Tuty says:

    Did CP use the mini cheesecake pan? Would you mind sharing the dimension of the pan?

    BTW, Salted Caramel Topping will be delightful too ;-)

    Hi Bee, I made this cake in muffin pan this morning. I baked an additional 20 minutes because at 15 minutes, the top didn’t turn golden brown (my oven rack is placed in the middle). Also, the top of my cakes were pointy and not flat like yours (see picture in my FB link below). Am I doing anything wrong somewhere?

  9. Amy says:

    Can show the dimension or the size of the mini cheese cake pan… Or can I use 12 holes of cup cake pan ?

  10. These are the perfect bites – I can never decide if I want something buttery or something chocolatey. Now I can do both =D

  11. Amy says:

    Can show what type of dimension for the cheesecake pan

    I tried baking these yummy cuties and they taste absolutely delicious! But the brownie crumple easily when the fork cuts in. Is the texture supposed to be like that?

  16. Deborah says:

    Can I substitute dark cocoa powder instead of melting a dark chocolate bar?

  17. Layla says:
