Recipe of the Month: Delicious Coffee Brownies

My mother used to make this recipe when I was still in high school, and it was the only form of coffee I could stand. Now that I occasionally drink lattes, I thought I’d give this a go at baking it myself and adding a little twist to it. What better time to try something new, than one day before the holidays, right?

The lemon juice and sea salt weren’t in the original recipe, but as I experimented, found that they bring out the flavor of the chocolate and coffee very nicely!

Delicious Coffee Brownies

Ingredients

  • 250 g butter
  • 500 g sugar
  • 200 g flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 50 g cocoa
  • 100 ml coffee
  • 100 g chocolate
  • 2 g baking powder
  • 2 g sea salt
  • half a lemon

Melt the butter and sugar, cocoa and previously brewed coffee. Set aside 20 tablespoons of it to which you’ll add the diced chocolate.

Cool down the remaining mix, after which add the egg yolks.

Pour it all onto the beaten egg whites. Add the flour a couple of tablespoonfuls at a time stirring gently. Mix the sea salt and baking powder in half a lemon’s juice, then mix into the batter.

Bake for about 40 minutes at 180-200 C.

When it’s done, spread the glaze on top and let cool.

Optionally, make markings with a knife as to where you’ll cut the slices once it’s cooled down.

Happy baking! ;)

One Common Plate, week 2 – Creamy Dill Sauce for Any Fish Dish

1 Common Plate

Is all it takes to bridge the gap

In the words of their Editor, Slurrpy is a place where people cook, tell stories, share culinary experiences, grievances and create a community that thrives on the love for good food.

12 per 5 common plate

The common man who work 10 hours a day and come home to wonder what to eat. The everyday cooks who feed hungry people, everyday, 3 times a day, 21 times a week keeping in mind each of our family member’s preferences. The people who do dishes, chop vegetables,  have zero sous chefs.

When people start using their “super powers” for good, it bridges differences, I think. Taking part in One Common Plate, I think we’re doing a world of good, with something as simple as experimenting in our kitchen across the globe.

Following the link below, is my second recipe to have been uploaded to Slurrpy’s website, during week two of four.
