Pieday Friday ~ Mocha choca brownies recipe

What a healthy start to the new year eh? Chocolate – yes, butter – yum, coffee – great! What more do you want from a weekend treat when you’ve been so very good eating fruit and veggies all week long?! I’ve been in the kitchen baking these yummy brownies so that when I need to reach for a sneaky treat at the weekend, it won’t be a whole tin of biscuits – it’ll just be one square of something rich, chocolately and satisfying. So here’s how I made my mocha choca brownies recipe and I hope you’ll give it a go too:

Ingredients 115g butter, 150g plain flour, 115g dark chocolate, 3 tablespoons of cooled coffee (I used rich Illy coffee), 200g brown sugar, 3 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla extract, pinch of salt, 150g chocolate chips (optional)

Method Melt chocolate and butter together and in another bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar until fluffy then add the vanilla, coffee and pinch of salt before mixing in the liquid chocolate mixture. Stir in the flour and add chocolate chips if you like before pouring into a baking tray – I lined my tray with greaseproof paper so that it would be easier to lift out the brownie after cooking. Bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees until the batter is set and crisp on top. It should crack a little when you lift it out, but still be gooey on the inside!

If ever I needed an excuse to get out the brownie baking tin I received as an anniversary present last year, this was it! They are sooo delicious, but because I have cut them into small squares, they’re really not too naughty per peice and will store for ages in an airtight tub, so I’ll be able to enjoy them all week – that is as long as hubby doesn’t scoff the lot this weekend 😉
