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 recipeswith 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.

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 cakeis 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.
