Next, dissolve 1 Â½ teaspoons of instant coffee in 2 tablespoons of hot water. Pour the coffee into the melted butter and chocolate, and mix until smooth. Remove the chocolate mixture from the heat and let cool until it is barely warm. Add 2 eggs that have been whisked together with 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the cooled chocolate mixture. In a separate bowl, mix Â½ cup flour and a pinch of salt together, then whisk it into the chocolate mixture until it becomes smooth again. Now spread this mixture out into a greased baking pan and bake in the center of the oven for 25-35 minutes, or until the top is just set. While the brownies cook, letâ€™s make the icing.
In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of salted butter, Â½ cup of icing sugar, and 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. Mix in Â½ teaspoon of instant coffee, Â½ teaspoon of vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of hot water and stir until smooth. Once the brownies are finished baking, ice them in the pan while they are still hot. Let them cool and then cut into pieces to serve. There you have it: a pan of delicious coffee brownies.
