Holy moly guys. These brownies are wildly delicious and oh SO easy to make. The best part is that you will likely have all of these ingredients in your kitchen already.
Are you the queen of making a piping hot cup of coffee only to let it sit on the counter while you do the 75 million things that are on your mile long list?
Then maybe you put it in the microwave to heat it up and forget about it. And then maybe it’s 5pm before you find it again?
Save two tablespoons of that cold coffee for this recipe because it’s the secret ingredient!! Although, not so secret anymore I suppose.
One Bowl Fudgey Pecan Brownies
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons strong coffee, room temp
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- pinch of Kosher salt
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine butter, sugar, eggs, coffee and vanilla until well combined. Then add flour, cocoa powder and salt and mix until just combined.
Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and pour batter into the pan. Use a spatula to spread it in an even layer. Sprinkle with pecans and push them into the batter ever so slightly.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the edges start to pull away from pan and the center is set. Let cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
