  • 11 tablespoons butter
  • 1 and ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee or espresso
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 325° F
  • Line a 9x9 or 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper. Spray paper with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.
  • Once melted, add sugar and stir for 1-2 minutes until sugar is dissolved.
  • Sift in the cocoa powder, stir. 
  • Remove from heat and let in cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Pour into a large bowl. And add eggs one at a time, mixing well.
  • Add the vanilla and coffee. Stir.
  • Add the flour, cornstarch, and salt. Mix until flour is incorporated.
  • Fold in the chocolate chunks and pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes or the center is set. Remember they will set more when cool. (The toothpick test doesn't work well on these brownies because of the chocolate chunks.)
  • Allow to cool completely before removing from pan and cutting.
