Have you ever made Homemade Brownies? Of course for most of you, the answer is probably yes. Well for me it was, no, until I discovered this recipe for homemade brownies with coffee in the batter.
Usually when I make brownies, I open a box. Because that’s what my kids have come to love. But I wanted to try to make them homemade and I always heard that adding coffee to any chocolate batter makes a great recipe.
Homemade Brownies with Coffee in the Batter
Melt the butter, cocoa and coffee in the microwave and then stir in the remaining ingredients. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes and you have delicious homemade brownies.
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder; for baking
- 1/2 cup day old coffee; cold
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup chopped nuts; optional
Place the coffee, butter and cocoa powder in a microwavable safe bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave and melt on low in 30 second intervals until the butter is melted; stirring in between.
Add the remaining ingredients, stir well to combine.
Pour the batter into a 9X13 pan that has been sprayed with nonstick baking spray.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean.
Let cool slightly before cutting.
