Though a classic recipe, it’s sure to become a new family favorite in your home – especially if you have a bit of coffee left over from this morning.
1 cup flour
¼ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup strong, cold coffee
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
Grease a 9-inch square baking pan and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in a heavy pot. Stir in brown sugar until dissolved. Cool and then add one egg.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add this to the butter mix alternately with vanilla and coffee. Blend well.
Stir in chocolate chips and then place batter in baking pan.
Bake for about 30 minutes. Serve with your favorite cup of coffee or a glass of milk.
