Mocha Brownies

As much a I love normal fudge brownies (like my Choc Chip Fudge Brownies), these brownies have a subtle coffee flavour that really gives them another dimension.

The original recipe came from Epicurious, but I have adapted it to use normal instant coffee granules and taken out the nuts to make them cheaper to make. If you have any nuts in your cupboard that you want to use then just add them with the flour.

Ingredients – makes approx 40 bite size brownies

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 225g/8oz unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp instant coffee granules (your favourite brand)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 1 and 1/4 cups plain (all purpose) flour
  • 50g/2oz chocolate chips

Method:

  • Spray a shallow non-stick baking pan (approx 27cm x 17.5cm x 3.5cm / 11in x 7in x 1.5in) with some cooking spray.
  • Heat your oven to 180C/160C fan forced/350F.
  • Put the sugar, melted butter, cocoa powder, coffee granules and salt in a large bowl and stir until mixed (the texture will be grainy).
  • Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla.
  • Fold in the flour.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and spread to level the top.
  • Sprinkle with the chocolate chips.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the centre appears just set.
  • Cool the brownies in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • Enjoy!
