Brownie meets cake in this fun dessert from Emily Luchetti, a cookbook author and pastry chef. She bakes the batter in muffin cups so the edges turn crispy and chewy like a brownie, but the inside becomes soft and fluffy like a cake.

  1. 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 5 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
  3. 3 tablespoons cake flour
  4. 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  5. 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 2 large eggs
  8. 3/4 cup sugar
  9. 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  10. Vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter and flour 8 cups in a standard-size muffin pan. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add one-fifth of the milk chocolate and whisk until melted. Let cool slightly.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the cake flour with the all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder and salt. In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar at medium speed until pale and thick, about 5 minutes. Beat in the vanilla extract. Beat in the melted chocolate mixture and the dry ingredients in 3 additions, scraping down the bowl occasionally with a spatula. Stir in the remaining chopped chocolate.
  3. Spoon the cake batter into the prepared muffin cups and bake for about 22 minutes, until the cakes are risen and springy. Let the cakes cool in the muffin pan for 15 minutes, then turn them out onto a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes longer. Serve the cakes warm, with ice cream.
Make Ahead The brownie cakes can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Rewarm the cakes before serving.
