. Seive baking powder and flour (that is kept aside for the cake) together a couple of times.
For the Brownie
Melt chocolate and butter in a saucepan. Make sure the flame is low. Keep stirring so that the butter doesnt melt more and turn into ghee, or the chocolate starts sticking to the bottom. Once the mixture has come together and is smooth and glossy, set it aside to cool. Add nrown sugar and mix it well till the sugar dissolves.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
When the mixture is warm ( you should be able to feel nice and warm not hot nor room temperature when you touch the bottom of the saucepan) add egg and mix well using a whisk.
Fold in the flour till well combined. Pour this mixture into the prepared tins and bake for 10 to 13 mins. The top has to be set that’s it.
For the Butter Cake
Cream butter and sugar for 2 mins using a hand blender. The mixture has to turn pale yellow colour. Add eggs one by one mixing well. Now using a spatula, fold the flour and baking powder mix into this. Mix till there are no lumps.
Fill this batter into a pipping bag and keep it ready.
As soon as the brownie is done, pull the baking tray out and very quickly pipe the cake batter on the hot brownie. Make it quick as the butter in the batter will start melting immediately. Flatten the top as much as possible and slide the tray back into the oven and bake for an other 20 to 25 mins or till skewer comes out clean.
Cool it in the tin for 5 mins, carefully loosen the sides and remove the cake and serve it hot with a nice drizzle of melted chocolate or fresh cream…
