Chocolate and Coffee Brownie Recipe

This is my most requested dessert recipe ever! No joke. People that know us ask them by their true name which is Pastor Brownies. Why the name? I've been making these for about 15 years or more and the first time was for my husband who is a pastor. It makes a huge amount so when I make them I take them to church. So they are Pastor's Brownies and he shares them with others.

I do make these for potlucks so if you know me, don't bring them to a potluck we are attending together :)

Best Ever Brownie Recipe

This recipe has had many steps but well worth the effort.

Preheat oven to 400 degree. Butter/spray PAM on 17 1/2 X 11 baking sheet. This is also known as a jelly roll baking sheet (you need to use this size..if smaller it will overflow when baking). I use the 3 butter wrappers in this recipe to spread on the baking sheet instead of using spray oil.

Step 1

2 cups Flour
2 cups Sugar

Dump in bowl and mix. Set aside.
Step 2

1/2 cup Milk
2 Eggs
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Vanilla

I use a 2 cup measuring cup for these ingredients. I use a fork and lightly mix them together. Set this aside.

Step 3

1 cup Butter
1 cup coffee (any flavor.... this is my most secret ingredient for these fun to use different flavored coffee)
1/4 cup Unsweetened cocoa

Put ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a full boil.

Step 4

Pour hot cocoa mixture into the flour/sugar bowl. Mix together.
Next add egg mixture and stir until you no longer see the eggs.

Step 5
Pour batter into pan.
Bake 12-18 min or until center springs back when touched. Don't over bake!

Step 6
While brownies are baking quickly make the frosting. You will pour it on the brownies as soon as they come out of the oven.

1/2 cup Butter
2 tbsp Unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup Milk
3 1/2 cups Powder sugar
2 tsp Vanilla

Combine butter, cocoa and milk in same saucepan from step 3. I do not clean out the pan.
Bring to a boil over med heat.
Remove from heat and stir in powder sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Pour over hot brownies, spreading evenly.

Step 7
Once cool, cut into squares. Makes 30-40 brownies depending on size. Eat and share!


  1. Very similar recipe... you're just missing the cinnamon.

    You know, I just learned recently that the hot water or coffee helps to bloom the cocoa powder and give it a richer flavor. I thought that was interesting.

  2. I am soooo going to try this - I LOVE brownies!

  3. LOL thanks ladies! Janice .... remember if you are going to make these please be prepared to share with others! LOL
