Coffee brownies recipe

My husband is a huge coffee fan – never a day goes by without several coffee cups ending up in the dishwasher. Me? Not so much – it’s not my drink of choice, but I do love to bake with coffee flavours. One of my favourite recipes is the coffee brownie.

  • Vegetable oil
  • 400g sugar
  • 225g butter
  • 95g cocoa powder
  • 45g ground coffee, or 30-50ml liquid coffee 
  • Half teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 175g plain flour
  • 100g chocolate chips


  • Grease a baking tray with the vegetable oil
  • Mix sugar, butter, cocoa powder, coffee and and salt
  • Whisk in eggs and vanilla essence, then fold in flour and chocolate chips
  • Spread mix into the baking tray and bake for 25 minutes at 180 degrees.
  • Decorate as desired – maybe with chopped nuts, crystallised ginger or a coffee icing?

So, although I may not be a fan of drinking coffee, I am definitely a fan of baking with it. As I have said before, my husband is a huge coffee fan, in any shape or form, and he has recently been hinting about the rather fabulous looking Nespresso machine. I know he would love one for Christmas, and I wouldn’t mind too much either – it would look fabulous in my kitchen, and I do love the smell of freshly brewed coffee. I have discovered these fabulous Nespresso compatible pods from Caffe Cagliari, which I will definitely stock up on, so that when he gets his longed for Nespresso machine, he is good to go right away!


Are you a coffee lover? Have you got any great coffee recipes for me to try?
