  • Author: adapted from King Arthur Flour
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 50 minutes


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2/3 cups Dutch-process cocoa
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp espresso powder
  • 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F, and lightly grease an 8x8" pan.
  2. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter.
  3. Once melted, add the sugar and cook for another minute.
  4. Remove from heat and add the cocoa and salt. Stir to combine.
  5. Add the vanilla, and then the eggs one at a time. Whisk fully so that the mixture is smooth and glossy.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder, espresso powder, and flour. Add to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  7. Stir in the chocolate chips (if you want them fully intact, let the mixture cool 10 minutes before doing this step).
  8. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and cook for 25-30 minutes - the top should have a thin crust, but the center will still be quite moist.
  9. Let cool 20 minutes before cutting and serving.
