Becky's Chocolate Brownies

My thanks to Becky O'Toole for sharing her delicious recipe for Chocolate Brownies - a popular dessert in her family.

115g unsalted butter - softened, plus extra for greasing
170g caster sugar
2 eggs
40g plain chocolate
1tsp vanilla extract
2tsp instant coffee granules
2tbs warm water
1tsp baking powder
55g plain flour
55g cocoa powder
icing sugar for dusting

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180'C or Gas Mark 4.
  • Prepare a cake tin by greasing an 18cm square cake tin and line it with non stick baking parchment.
  • In a clean bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  • Chop the chocolate and gently fold it into the butter and egg mixture. Add the vanilla extract.
  • Dissolve the coffee granules in two tablespoons of warm water and add to the mixture. Mix together well.
  • Add the baking powder, then sift in the flour and cocoa powder. Mix well - the mixture will be quite wet.
  • Spoon the brownie batter into the prepared tin and level out the top with a spatula.
  • Bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool in the tin for ten minutes, then place on a  wire rack to cool.
  • To serve, cut into rectangles and dust with icing sugar.
Yummy! Thanks Becky.
