°156 grams all-purpose flour
°1 teaspoon salt
°2 tsp processed cocoa powder
°312gm dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
°226g unsalted butter, cut into 1 inch pieces
°1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
°300 grams granulated sugar
°100g packed light brown sugar
°5 eggs at room temperature
°2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).
Butter the sides and bottom of a 23cm x 33cm baking pan. Butter paper should be used to cover the tray.
Whisk together flour, salt, and cocoa powder in a mixing dish.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the chocolate, butter, and instant espresso powder; set over a saucepan of simmering water and whisk occasionally until the chocolate and butter are completely melted.
Remove the pot from the heat and place it over the water, then add the sugars. Remove bowl from pan after whisking until completely blended. It’s best if the combination is at room temperature.
Add 3 eggs to the chocolate mixture and beat until combined. Add the remaining eggs and beat until combined.
Adding vanilla & stir until mixed. Don’t overheat the mixture at this point so the brownies won’t clump.
Sprinkling flour mixture on chocolate mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fold the flour mixture into the chocolate until very little of the flour mixture appears.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake in the center of the oven for 30 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking time, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the brownies and a few moist crumbs come out.
Allow the brownies to cool completely, then remove from the skillet using parchment paper. Cut into squares and serve.
