“Coffee adoration” is a valid search term

I kid you not. ‘Coffee adoration” is a valid search term on Pinterest and will give quite a few lovely findings to lose yourself in. Especially if one loves coffee. But even if you don’t, there’s always something fun to read about and see. Which brings me to my point.

Today, I talk about coffee and funky signs over at Milliver’s Travels, where I have a short article and lots of pictures for your amusement: Funky Signs: The coffee adoration edition.

Come on over to Milliver’s Travels and let me know: do you like coffee? How about funky signs? Can you recall seeing similarly funny signs in coffee shops?

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! ;)
