Plumcake alla vaniglia e Brownie! in italiano

At Sleek there is one dessert in particular that we sell kind of easily, and that’s brownie. But you should know me by now, I love experimenting, so when I saw this recipe, which originally is for a cake, I decided to make a plumcake out of it, a butter plumcake with a thick brownie at the bottom.

Need I to say more? Am I convincig enough?!

I usually have troubles with plumcakes, they don’t always turn out that good, sometimes I overcook them, some other times they are still raw in the middle. But with this one, the cooking time is spot on and as you can see I did a marvellous job.

(Yes, I’m complimenting myself!)

Brownie’s ingredients:

  • 160g of dark chocolate, chopped
    60g of butter

  9. Add in the sugar, the eggs, the milk and whisk for 3-4 minutes.
  10. Add in the flour and the baking soda.
  11. Set aside till the brownie is ready.
    After 15 minute take the tin out of the oven and pour the plumcake batter over the brownie, place the tin back into the oven and bake for 50 minutes.
  12. Always remember to check if it is cooked properly.

Let chill down and have it for your afternoon break with a good cup of coffee!
It is simply delicious, the brownie bottom melts into your mouth as well as the butter plumcake.

Try and add halzelnuts to the brownie batter if you wish to, it is a nice way to give extra taste to this amazing fluffy plumcake!
