The Perfect Fudgy Brownies

Total Time 50 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 16


  • 1 ounce semi-sweet chocolate 28g
  • 3 ounces high-quality dark chocolate 60-70% cocoa (85g) – I prefer Lindt or Valrhona
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter 140g
  • ¾ cup sugar about 165g
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee mixed with 1 tablespoon hot water
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour about 65g
  • cup cocoa powder about 35g – Dutch-processed works best, like Valrhona
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces chocolate chips or chopped chocolate of choice 55g, mix of milk chocolate and semi-sweet


  • Preheat your oven to 335°F (conventional) and line a 9” baking pan with parchment paper, lightly coated with butter or oil.
  • Melt 1 ounce semi-sweet and 3 ounces dark chocolate with the butter in a microwave-safe bowl using 20-second increments, stirring in between. Don’t overheat.
  • Whisk eggs and sugar on medium-high speed until thick and ribbony (3-5 minutes).
  • Pour the melted chocolate and butter into the egg and sugar mixture, gently whisk at low speed until combined.
  • Mix instant coffee with hot water, pour in, and gently fold into the batter.
  • Sift in flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Gently fold dry ingredients into the wet using a rubber spatula, being careful not to knock out the air.
  • Lastly, fold in the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the lined pan, spread evenly, and add more chocolate chunks on top if desired.
  • Bake immediately for 20-25 minutes (around 22 minutes is good for me).
  • Let cool to room temperature, cut with a sharp knife, and serve!


– Quality ingredients matter! I use Lindt or Valrhona dark chocolate and Valrhona Dutch-processed cocoa powder.
– These brownies are on the darker side, not too sweet, so don’t reduce sugar. For a darker flavor, use all 4 ounces of dark chocolate.
– Don’t skip the coffee; it enhances the chocolate flavor.
– Be cautious not to overbake; aim for a slight jiggle when taken out. A toothpick should come out with moist crumbs, not wet batter. Enjoy your brownie bliss!
