Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon coffee extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed

Instructions

  • In a bowl, sift together flour and baking powder.
  • In a heat proof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, combine butter, cocoa and coffee extract. Cook, stirring regularly, for about 5 minutes or until melted. Remove bowl from heat and allow to cool.
  • In a large bowl, combine eggs, salt, sugar, and brown sugar. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat until thickened. 
  • Add cocoa mixture gradually, beating slowly until blended. 
  • Gently fold in flour mixture to the cocoa mixture. 
  • Pour batter into a greased 8-inch baking dish and bake in a 350 F oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until top begins to puff and center is just set.
  •  Remove from oven and set on a wire rack to cool. Cut into servings.

Notes

The original recipe called for 1/4 teaspoon coffee extract and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. I made my own coffee extract, added more than what was called for and did not add the vanilla.
