Frosted Mocha Brownies

Chocolate Mocha BrowniesThe coffee added to the brownie batter and frosting yields a delightful flavor combination.

  • 2 cups flour

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1/2 cup shortening

  • 1 cup brewed coffee

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

  • 1/2 cup sour milk (1/2 cup milk plus 2 tsp. vinegar)

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa

  • 1/4 cup brewed coffee

  • 3 cups powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

In large mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar. In a heavy saucepan, combine butter, shortening, coffee and cocoa. Stir and heat to boiling. Pour boiling mixture over flour and sugar. Add milk, eggs, baking soda and vanilla. Mix well with spoon or electric mixer until smooth. Pour into a well greased 11x17” jelly roll pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 400°. While the brownies are baking, prepare the frosting. To save time on clean up, we use the same saucepan that we used for the brownie batter to make the frosting. Combine butter, cocoa, and coffee in the heavy saucepan. Stirring constantly, heat until mixture is boiling. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer until smooth. Pour warm frosting over brownies as soon as you take them out of the oven.  Sprinkle with chopped walnuts if desired.
