  • 13 tablespoons butter
  • 6 1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate chopped
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee


  • Preheat the oven to 325° and line a 11x7 pan with tin foil and spray with non-stick spray.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and chocolate together, stirring constantly, until completely smooth. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix the all purpose flour, cake flour, and salt together. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. I did this with my hand, vigorously stirring for a couple minutes. You can also use an electric mixer.
  • Add the chocolate mixture, vanilla, and coffee- stir to combine.
  • Gently add in the flour, mixing until just combined.
  • Spread batter into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 min or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes with just a few moist crumbs. Do not over bake them.
  • Let cool completely in the pan, then remove them using the foil and cut into squares.
