The Ultimate Fudgy Brownies

The most important thing about a brownie is texture. Cakey brownies? Chewy Brownies? Or fudgy brownies? I love fudgy brownies, they are moist and they have an intensely chocolatey flavour. I made these brownies as a treat after making a story for my children in my kindergarten.

The Ultimate Fudgy Brownies
(baked in a 8" pan, makes 12 squares)

100g butter (softened)
200g sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp instant espresso
2 Tbsp hot water
100g chocolate
50g cocoa powder
45g cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

  1. Melt the chocolate over some hot water. Mix the instant espresso and the water together.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy.
  3. Add the coffee mixture.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time.
  5. Add the melted chocolate.
  6. Sift over the cake flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into the mixture. Mix until everything is just combined. Now, it should have a mousse - like texture.
  7. Pour into a lined 8" Bake in a pre - heated oven at 150C for 35 - 40 minutes. The brownie is done when the toothpick shows wet crumbs not wet batter. Cool in the pan for a while then transfer the brownie (with the baking paper) onto a wire rack to let cool. Cut the brownie when it has completely cooled down.

This brownie is soooooo yummy! I like to warm up my brownies and eat it with vanilla ice cream. YUM YUM YUM!
