Fudgy One Pot Brownies
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • ½ cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 2½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tb instant Coffee granules
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ c chopped pecans, optional
  1. To begin, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Generously butter a 13-by-9–inch baking pan or spray it with nonstick cooking spray. (I use my "pan-ease" mixture.)
  3. Measure out all of your ingredients.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk your eggs. Set aside.
  5. Place the butter and chocolate in a medium-size saucepan over low heat and let melt together, stirring until smooth. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder, sugar, salt and instant coffee granules, then blend in the vanilla. Beat in the eggs, stirring to mix quickly so they don’t have a chance to cook at all before they are blended in. Whisk in the flour. If you would like pecans in your brownies, stir them in now.
  6. Scrape the thick batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake until the edges just begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and a wooden skewer or toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.
  8. Let the brownies cool in the pan on a wire rack. When completely cool, cut them into squares.
  9. Enjoy!
