One-bite Triple Espresso Brownies

Hello everyone!

I’m so glad to be back! I finished the biggest part of my “doctoral research project” (This is the presentation of your research for approval by a committee; what I had to deliver). I’ll do the other part soon enough, but as a reward I did a dessert and this post 😀

So about the dessert, strangely enough I don’t drink coffee but love, love, love, everything with coffee in it, especially when it’s chocolaty! So I really had to try these espresso brownies!

The coffee and the cocoa I used are from Dominican Republic! It does sent me back there when I eat/smell them 😉

Have a good day 😀

P.S. Have you heard about what’s going on in Quebec right now? The strike against the tuitions hikes turned into a social crisis? Yep that’s us! I know there are some demonstrations around the world in support of the students so you might have heard about it. Some things that happened are really upsetting. If you want a Quebecer’s view on the crisis, you can ask me 😉

On a double boiler, melt the chopped chocolates and the butter. Whisk in the cocoa.  Set aside to cool slightly.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, vanilla, espresso, and salt until well-combined.  4walnuts. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs attached.  Cool on a wire rack to room temperature.

  5. Hi, I’m curious to know what coffee and cocoa you used from DR? I’m Dominican myself and I’m interested in using the same ingredients. I personally do not like coffee but I love the combination of coffee and chocolate and my mother rarely eats anything sweet that I bake but I’m hoping she’ll eat these 😀

    Thank you very much.

    • Ahahaha I bought it in a tourist tour, at Christian’s cocoa and coffee plantation. Is he know among Dominicans or just by tourists? The cocoa wasn’t great though I couldn’t make a powder with it, just little morsels :S

    Hi! So I was wondering, do these taste more like brownies, or cupcakes?

  7. I do love coffee, but I think everything chocolate needs a little espresso powder in it to make it taste even more chocolatey. I love that even the frosting has espresso in it. I’ll just skip the coffee in the AM and eat one of these!
