Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons beaten egg
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules

  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and semisweet chocolate until blended. Dissolve coffee granules in hot water; beat into chocolate mixture. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture.
