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.
So, you can clearly see why I am partial to this brownie butter cake—it’s butter cake, but better, because there is brownie at the bottom of the butter cake.
Just look at the photos, I am sure you can smell the buttery and rich chocolate aroma from the screen.
Put simply, this brownie butter cake is simply brilliant and irresistible.
This recipe calls for double baking: first, you bake the brownie, and then the butter cake that goes on top.
However, the time invested is well worth it when you sink your teeth into the rich, buttery, warm, chocolate-y brownie butter cake.

I mixed the butter cake batter while baking the brownie. Then I poured the butter cake batter VERY QUICKLY onto the "hot" brownie. The butter cake batter will melt instantly.
The second time I baked this brownie butter cake, I put the butter cake batter into a piping bag and cut a big hole at the tip, pipe in the butter cake batter quickly, and just shake and tap the pan to smooth the top.
