Easy Fudgy Salted Espresso Brownies Recipe

Extra fudgy dark chocolate brownies with a kick of salt and espresso powder to make the taste extra rich. This is for coffee fans!


– 5 oz 142g bittersweet chocolate (70% cocoa) coarsely chopped – ⅓ cup 75g salted butter – 2 large eggs at room temperature – ½ cup 100g granulated sugar – ⅓ cup 70g packed light brown sugar – ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract – heaped ¼ teaspoon salt – ⅓ cup plus 1 tbsp 60g all-purpose flour – 1 tablespoon 6g cocoa powder, sifted – 1 teaspoon espresso powder – ½ cup 85g dark chocolate chips


Heat the oven to 350°F. Leave a 2-inch overhang on either side of an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.

Step 1

Melt chocolate and butter in a skillet over very low heat and stir continually until smooth, or microwave at 50% power in short bursts with frequent swirling.

Step 2

Whisk eggs and both sugars in a large bowl until pale and thick. Wait a minute or two. I prefer whisking by hand to an electric mixer. Mix salt and vanilla.

Step 3

Add warm melted chocolate mixture and blend well. Once evenly combined, the batter should stiffen and shine.

Step 4

Whisk flour, cocoa powder, and espresso powder in a small basin to remove lumps. 

Step 5

Sprinkle it on chocolate batter and mix well. Add chocolate chips. Bake 20–24 minutes after spreading batter evenly in pan.
