Brownie Cake:⠀
Melt the vegan butter and chocolate in a pot.⠀
Mix the flour with salt, baking powder, baking soda in a bowl. Add the flax eggs and melted chocolate butter and mix until combined. The batter should be creamy. Add a little bit more of plant-based milk, if needed.⠀

Layer the cake:⠀
Spread 1/3 of the brownie cake batter into a greased 7-inch (18 cm) round baking tin. Continue dollop the cheesecake batter and the brownie batter by a heaped spoonful in exchange until the batter is empty.⠀

Spread frosting over your cooled brownie cake and you can also pipe on some decorations if you like. Also, decorate with salted peanuts or just enjoy as they are! ⠀
