Coffee brownies are a delightful treat that combine the rich flavors of coffee with the indulgent goodness of brownies. Here's a simple recipe to help you make delicious coffee brownies:


- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. **Preheat the Oven:**
   - Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan and set it aside.

2. **Melt Butter:**
   - In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Once melted, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly.

3. **Combine Wet Ingredients:**
   - In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and sugar. Stir until well combined.

4. **Add Eggs and Coffee:**
   - Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then, add the brewed coffee and vanilla extract. Mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

5. **Sift Dry Ingredients:**
   - In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

6. **Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:**
   - Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

7. **Add Chocolate Chips:**
   - Fold in the chocolate chips to distribute them evenly throughout the batter.

8. **Pour and Smooth:**
   - Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and use a spatula to smooth it out into an even layer.

9. **Bake:**
   - Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached.

10. **Cool and Cut:**
    - Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes, then use a sharp knife to cut them into squares. Let them cool completely before serving.

11. **Optional: Dust with Cocoa:**
    - If desired, you can dust the cooled brownies with a little extra cocoa powder for an added touch of flavor and presentation.

12. **Serve and Enjoy:**
    - Plate your coffee brownies and serve them with a hot cup of your favorite brew for the ultimate coffee lover's treat.

Enjoy your homemade coffee brownies! They're perfect for sharing with friends and family or indulging in as a special treat just for yourself.
