Classic Guilty Brownies
adapted from Nestle Toll House
1 2/3 cup granulated sugar
1.5 sticks unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons water
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon instant coffee (optional)
3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine sugar, butter, and water in a large bowl. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Stir into the wet ingredients.
3. Spread into a well greased 13×9-inch baking dish. Bake for 18-25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out slightly sticky. Cool on a wire rack.
My brownies took the whole 25 minutes. These brownies are crispy on the outside but totally soft on the inside. I also didn’t use nuts this time even though I love them with nuts!
I use 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules because I love the flavor. You can taste it a bit in this recipe, so if you don’t like coffee, you can omit it.
