Mocha Brownies

Sometime you see a recipe and you read the instructions and wonder how that is going to turn out.  Well, this is one of those recipes.  Not only did i have to try it because of how different it was but it sounded good too.  I saw this recipe awhile ago on Tasty Kitchen and saved it.  I made it recently for a dinner party and it was a huge hit.  There is nothing normal with this brownie at all.  First you make the brownie mix and pour in into the pan and then your pour coffee all over it.  When I did this i just stared at it and through it was going to be a dissaster.  But boy was I wrong.  What comes out of the oven is this delicious chocolate and coffee brownie that is out of this world, and it is very easy to make too.  But before you go and make this I do have to warn you:  this brownie is VERY rich.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Hi, Ewa. It looks as if you made a classic self-saucing brownie pudding, AKA, “hot-fudge pie” or “brownie pudding” and various other names. This dish was very big in the 1970s and 1980s in the US. But the recipes often did not have coffee, so the espresso version is very good.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    For my birthday one year, a roommate made me a Texas sheet cake, which has you pour chocolate syrup over the freshly-baked cake. I’ve never tried a recipe in which you pour liquid over the unbaked batter! But with results like yours, I’m clearly going to have to try.

    This sounds amazing. I love a good brownie. This is almost like a brownie pudding, an easy recipe with which you can’t go wrong.

    This looks and sounds both unusual and fantastic, I’d love to try to make it gluten-free!

    Could you be more specific about how much chocolate is required? How much does one piece/square of chocolate weigh??

    My MIL makes a cake similar to this but she pours boiling water over it. This sounds much better with the brownie and coffee! A must make.

      Hmm Boiling Water? First i thought that might not be good, but it might just turn out less sweet and more pudding like. I might just have to try that. This kind of open up the imagination for more, what if you poured over coca cola? Hmm. . interesting.
