  • 40 ml espresso
  • 125 g butter
  • 75 g good quality plain chocolate
  • 150 g light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 70 g plain flour
  • 80 g walnut pieces or other nuts
  • 20 g butter + 20 g caster sugar for the cake tin


  • In a saucepan, melt the chocolate with the butter, add the coffee and mix well.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until pale and creamy, using a whisk, then incorporate the flour.
  • Add the melted chocolate mixture and the walnuts.
  • Pour the mixture into the buttered, sugared cake tin.
  • Cook in the oven at 200°C for around 20 minutes. Test that the brownies are cooked by piercing the mixture with a fine knife blade. It should come out with a little of the mixture on it.
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting.


Serve with coffee-flavoured crème anglaise.
