Mini Brownie Butter Cake

Mini Brownie Butter Cake

I had book marked this recipe long back and got delayed for the reason that I had to make two cake batters and last week when Rasha asked me if I can bake something for her that’s when I remembered this recipe and decided to go ahead with it ….When I made the brownie batter and put it in the oven and started with butter cake one just then I realized how simple making both these batter was and in no time the cake was ready

My kids love Brownies and Haseeb enjoys plain butter cake and I would say this cake was the answer to me …My niece Rida said the brownies layer tasted awesome and complimented well with the butter cake …Rasha loved it and was surprised to see two layers and the cutest part was when asked me if I can make them again and again for her ….
