200 gramsChocolate dark compound, chopped
3/4 cup Butter, softened
3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
2 medium eggs
1 cup APF
2 tsp Cocoa Powder
1tsp Instant coffee powder
1/2 cup Chocolate chips (optional)
1/4 cup chopped nuts of choice (almonds/ walnuts/ pecan nuts ) optional
Preheat the oven to 350 F/ 175 C. Line a 9×9 pan with paper and lightly butter/ oil it.
In a microwave safe bowl or a double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter, stirring until the mixture is smooth. Stir in the sugar and the vanilla. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
Sift together the salt, cocoa powder, coffee powder, and the flour, add this to the chocolate and egg mixture mixing until the mixture is just combined, and add the chocolate chips. Add the nuts at this point if using.
Pour the batter into the pan, smooth the top, and bake the mixture in the middle of a preheated 350° F oven for 25-28 minutes, check at 25 until a tester comes out clean. Let the mixture cool a bit.
Lift it out with the foil and place it on a rack to cool completely (No cheating 😊otherwise brownie will break )
Cut it into desired size and share with family n friends 😁
