White chocolate mocha brownies


It's been months since I've baked brownies ....

And I've dreamed that I'm eating fudgy brownies last night !

In reality , my baked brownies is a tad dry , more cakey than the fudgy ones I've been eating in my dreams ! lol

Maybe because I've just added half the sugar than what the recipe calls  ?

For sure it's overcooked .....

A tad scorched at the edges as well tsk tsk !

According to recipe , cook for 50 to 60 minutes !

Ha ! I've cooked mine for about 40 minutes ugh !

Oh well ! It's still wonderfully chocolaty .....

It has coffee and white chocolate , my fave combo ! ^___^

There are cashews and pecans in there as well .....

Good thing I've added that 3 extras !

Worth baking again , in less than the allotted time , 30 to 35 minutes , I think .....


Mocha brownies , recipe adapted from Martha Stewart

My modification in red

8 tablespoon / 113 grams unsalted butter , cut into pieces ( 100 grams ) 
1 cup flour , spooned and leveled
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 teaspoons instant espresso (  1 1/2 tablespoon ) 
8 oz semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate
1 1/4 cups sugar ( scant 3/4 cup raw sugar )
3 large eggs
100 grams white chocolate chips
75 grams cashews and pecans 

* Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C . Grease a 9-inch square pan and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper , leaving a 2-inch overhang on 2 sides ( for easy removal ) , butter the parchment paper as well .
* In a small bowl , combine the flour , cocoa powder , baking powder and salt , whisk to combine ; set aside .
* Place chocolate and butter in a large bowl  and set over a saucepan with barely simmering water , stirring occasionally until melted , about 2 to 3 minutes . Add sugar , mix to combine . Add in the eggs , mixing well . Add the flour mixture , mix until just moistened ( do not over mix ) add instant espresso . Transfer mixture to the prepared pan and bake until toothpick inserted comes out with a few moist crumbs attached , about 50 to 60 minutes ( BEWARE !!! )  . Cool in the pan for 30 minutes and transfer in the wire rack , let cool completely before cutting .

  8. Hi Anne,

    Due to your bake, I realize that the comments of this recipe at Martha Stewart did mentioned that 25-30 min is enough to bake this brownies.

    You know what...you can trim off the edges and give them to me. I wouldn't mind eating them like chocolate biscotti :D

  15. These certainly looks super yummy to me & look at all those cashews and pecans nuts! I agreed with Baby Sumo that MS should get an editor to double check their recipes. Not only for the cooking time but certain amount of ingredients that I find way to much for baking ! LOL Well, you can always count on me to eat those tad scorched at the edges of your brownies ! I'll be there in no time! :D heheheheheehe
