Chewy Chocolate Coffee Brownie

I have baked brownies over the years and have used different recipes. You can hardly go wrong in a brownie. If it is slightly undercooked, it is fudgy and overcooked, cakey. But, the taste is always good. You can find a million recipes online and I have tried many of them. I usually make brownies with oil. Sometimes I use 90 % dark chocolate if I want a real chocolatey brownie (which kids do not usually enjoy) and sometimes milk chocolate if I am baking for kids. This recipe, just calls for cocoa. It is one of the best brownies I have made. This was served with vanilla ice cream. We also serve this with a drizzling of Kahlua on top. Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures. But believe me, my mouth is watering as I pen down this recipe. Enjoy!

Update: Made the brownies again and remembered to take pictures.

This recipe has been adapted from the Nestle recipe.

Ingredients:

1 cup of granulated sugar

3/4 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 tbsp black coffee (optional) – if you do not want to use coffee, substitute with water

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour (maida) – I sometimes substitute half the flour with whole wheat flour

3/4 cup cocoa

1/2 Tsp baking soda

1/4 Tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

powdered sugar (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° F / 180° C

Mix together butter, sugar and coffee in a bowl. To it add eggs and vanilla and mix.

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in another bowl.

Add the sugar- butter mixture to the flour and mix.

Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.

Spread onto a prepared baking pan.

Bake for around 20 minutes.

Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
