I hope you’ll forgive me, but I have decided to extend the first week of my new event, mainly because it has only just “made it” to The Daily Post’s Events listing (see what I did there?) Don’t worry, though – I will still share the details of something else I made in the last seven days…
Taking advantage of the extra time off from work many of us are fortunate to get over the Easter long weekend, I decided to do some baking. While I was waiting for the Other Half to come home with some extra supplies I needed to give KitchenSpells’ Chocolate and Marshmallow Cupcakes a go (more about that in a future post), I was flicking through some of my many recipe books to see if there was something relatively quick I could whip up in the meantime.
It wasn’t long before I stumbled upon a deliciously indulgent recipe for which I miraculously had all the ingredients on hand…
Triple Chocolate Mocha Brownies
- ½ cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 125g unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 3 Tbs instant espresso powder
- 2 cups golden brown sugar, firmly packed
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup plain flour
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup macadamia nuts, chopped (or other nut of choice, if you wish)
- 90g bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 90g white chocolate, chopped
Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F). Line a 20cm x 20cm x 5cm baking pan with aluminium foil, allowing the foil to overhang the sides. Grease the foil. (In hindsight, I would also add a layer of baking paper on top of the foil at the base of the pan to prevent sticking.)
Mmm…chocolate and coffee – another match made in heaven!
