Ina’s Outrageous Brownies
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
3 oz. unsweetened chocolate
3 extra-large eggs
1 ½ tbsp. instant coffee powder
1 tbsp. real vanilla extract
1 cup and 2 tbsp. sugar
½ cup and 2 tbsp. flour, divided – ½ cup for batter and 2 tbsp. .in the chips
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups morsels (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate or butterscotch)
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9×13” metal pan.
Melt together the butter, 1 ½ cups chocolate chips, and unsweetened chocolate on top of a double boiler. Cool slightly. Stir together the eggs, instant coffee, vanilla and sugar. Stir in the warm chocolate mixture and cool to room temperature.
Stir together ½ cup of the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to cooled chocolate mixture. Toss the chocolate chips with 2 tbsp. flour to coat. Then add to the chocolate batter. Pour into prepared pan.
