Choco Cakey Brownies

This brownie is for those who do not like the wet and gooey middle when they bite into it. When you bite into this brownie, you will be able to feel the moist and dense cake sponge. This brownie is similar to the gooey brownie except for its texture which is a bit similar to the cake. The body of this brownie is a bit risen as compared to the gooey brownie due to baking powder in the recipe.
