We’ve added a shot of strong coffee to give these chocolate brownies a mouth-watering mocha flavour. Swirl through the cream cheese mixture at the end for a truly rich but ridiculously good treat.

 

Ingredients

  • 145g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 200g plain chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 100ml freshly made strong coffee
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 medium free-range eggs
  • 85g plain flour

For the marbling mixture

  • 150g cream cheese
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 1 medium free-range egg, beaten
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Butter and line a 20cm square tin.
  2. Melt the butter and chocolate in a large bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir in the coffee, remove and cool slightly.
  3. Stir in the sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt, then whisk in the eggs and beat until smooth. Add the flour and carry on beating until glossy. Set aside.
  4. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth, then stir in the sugar, egg and vanilla.
