Cappuccino Brownies

The date actually shows the first time I made those, and sent some to the school for the teachers to try. When I came by later, the teachers literally pounced on me for the recipe… so here it is!

Ingredients:

  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 100g chocolate, broken into pieces: here I must explain that the choice is yours, I have used chocolate with caramel chips, cranberries… whatever takes your fancy
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp espresso powder (I have a very good coffee I bought, only for baking purposes)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/ 160Fan/ gas 4 and grease or line a 30×20 (12″x8″) baking pan ( I have my brownie pan, see Gallery)
  • Melt the chocolate and the butter together in a bowl over a pan of simmering water
  • As soon as it has melted, remove from heat and leave to cool slightly
  • With an electric whisk, mix in the sugar then the eggs, one at a time
  • Add the espresso, vanilla and salt
  • Sift in the flour and baking powder, folding in gently by hand until well combined
  • Pour into the pan and bake for 35mn, or until risen, crusty at the top but still soft undeneath
  • Leave to cool completely in the pan
