1 stick plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon finely ground coffee beans (I actually used instant coffee)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square cake pan, line the bottom with parchment paper, and grease the paper.
Place the butter and unsweetened chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Using the lowest heat setting, melt the butter and chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar, ground coffee, and vanilla. Whisk in the chocolate mixture. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder over the batter in the bowl. Fold a few times, add 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips, and fold until well mixed. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and scatter the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips evenly over the top.
As most of you know, my husband is a pastor. I am privileged to be part of the launch team for a wonderful new resource for pastors’ wives and I am so excited to share it with you! The book is The Church Planting Wife: Help and Hope for her Heart by Christine Hoover. Although we are not currently planting a church, this book absolutely resonated with me. If you are a pastor’s wife and especially if you are a church planting wife, it will touch your heart and lift your spirit. Stay tuned for my review of the book on Wednesday. In the meantime, I’m doing a giveaway! For a chance to win a copy of the book for yourself or a friend, simply leave a comment on this post. I will randomly select a winner on February 1st.
