Last Saturday my daughter had a violin concert at school and I had signed up to send in some brownies. To make it slightly interesting, I added some coffee powder to the recipe. After sending her plain brownies, I did the coffee glaze on a small portion of it. The brownies were a real hit, with the glaze they looked all glossy and dressed up..

Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda and mix the coffee powder in the milk. Beat the eggs, add the oil, melted butter and the brown sugar, mix everything well. Now, mix in the milk, vanilla extract, then slowly add the sifted dry ingredients and salt, mix well, add the chocolate chips ( dusted with little flour ).
