How to make coffee brownies?

Step 1: Heat the oven to 165 degrees Celsius and place a piece of baking paper in a baking tin with a length of about 22cm.

Step 2: Put the coffee and a table spoon of sugar into a pan at high temperature and let it cook until you are left with about two table spoons of coffee syrup.

Step 3: Chop the chocolate into pieces and add, together with the butter, into the pan with the coffee syrup. Let the mixture melt on low temperature.

Step 4: Whisk the eggs together with the sugar into a foamy white substance. Usually this will take about 10 minutes. While doing this, add the melted chocolate mixture to the substance.

Step 5: Strain the flour on top of the substance and gently mix with a spatula to keep the substance spongy. Pour the substance in the baking tin and place in the oven.

Step 6: Bake for about 25 – 30 minutes. Afterwards, take out of the oven and use a skewer to check if the cake is ready. If the skewer can pierce through the cake without getting sticky, your cake is ready.

Step 7: Let the brownies cool. Mix the cacoa with spices and sprinkle the brownies with it. Cut into 16 pieces and you are done!
