Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Brownie Layer

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease an 8×8-inch square baking pan.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 1/2 cup of butter in 30-second intervals until fully melted.

Stir in the cocoa powder until smooth and well combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 cup of granulated sugar, 2 eggs, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Add the cocoa-butter mixture to the sugar-egg mixture and stir until fully combined.

In another bowl, combine 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and set it aside.

2. Cake Layer

In a new bowl, cream 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in 1 large egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture, alternating with 1/2 cup of milk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.

Mix until the cake batter is smooth and well combined.

3. Combining the Layers

Carefully spread the cake batter over the brownie layer in the baking pan.

Use a spatula to swirl the two layers together for a marbled effect.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.

Allow the Chocolate Brownie Cake to cool before slicing and serving.
