I got the urge to do some Sunday baking recently and knew that my new workmates would appreciate a sweet treat to kickstart their Monday, so whipped up these hazelnut coffee brownies! The combo of dark chocolate & coffee means they are guaranteed to make your morning an excellent one!
The recipe is one I found on Good Food
- 200g dark chocolate
- 250g butter
- 4 eggs
- 125g brown sugar
- 125g castor sugar
- 30ml strong coffee
- 1tsp salt
- 100g plain flour
- 150g hazelnuts
- Preheat oven to 170C and line a 30x15cm pan with baking paper
- Melt together the chocolate and butter in a bowl over simmering water, stirring to combine and remove from the heat when just melted
- Beat together the eggs and sugars in a bowl until combined
- Stir in the melted chocolate, coffee, salt and flour
- Roughly chop the hazelnuts and fold through
- Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 40-50 minutes, until just cooked and slightly gooey in the centre
- Leave to cool in the pan then turn onto a wire rack then cut into squares
I was pretty popular when I pulled these hazelnut coffee brownies at our Monday morning meeting, that’s for sure! The hazelnuts add such a nice crunch and I love the addition of the coffee. Coffee makes most things better though!
They are quite rich, so I recommend cutting them into smallish pieces – that way people can always go back for seconds if they want! Thankfully they all got snapped up at work otherwise they might not have lasted too long at my house either!
