1. Cake layer:
200 g butter
3 dl sugar
1.5 dl strong coffee
1.5 dl heavy cream
4.5 dl flour
1.5 dl cocoa powder (that's real cocoa powder, not some drink mix, heathens!)
3 teaspoons baking powder
Melt butter, add sugar, add eggs one by one. Add baking powder to the flour and mix everything together. Bake at 175 C for 40-50 min until you can prick it with something sharp and it comes out dry.
2. Brownie layer:
3 dl sugar
1 dl cocoa (again, the real thing)
1 dl flour
200 C, 20 minutes. Don't test with anything sharp, it's not supposed to be dry inside.
6 dl sour cream
5 dl sugar
1 dl cocoa
20-30 ml butter
Boil for 5-7 minutes, stirring all the time.
Let everything cool. Cut the cake layer in three and the brownie layer in two. Cake layer should be moistened with some liquid (I use cream and coffee liqueur). Brownie layer should be moist all by itself. Put the layers together (cake-brownie-cake-brownie-cake), with some of the frosting between them. The rest of the frosting goes on top.
