Kahlua Brownies

November 22, 2009

I have a houseful of rug rats today.  And the guys are in the shop.  Guess its a good day to bury my self in the kitchen.  Been along time since I did that……way toooooo long.

KAHLUA BROWNIES

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup cocoa powder  (I use Penzeys)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 cups sugar

1 cup melted butter

4 eggs

4 Tbsp kahlua

1 1/2 chocolate chips

I mix it all together and throw it into a sprayed 9X14 pan.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until it starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.  Let cool before you cut them.  You can add nuts if you like, but I’m not much of a nut in my brownie type person.

I have made a saddening discovery though.  I am just about out of kahlua. What a shame.  Guess is will include the recipe and go make some.  This recipe was my Mom’s.

KAHLUA

2 cups sugar

2 cups water

1/2 cup instant coffee

Combine in saucepan and bring to simmer to melt sugar.  Do not boil.  Let syrup cool to room temperature.  Add:

2 cups vodka

3 Tbsp vanilla

I must admit that I use Everclear in place of the vodka.  Shhhhhh.  I have to bring it across the state line.  Can’t buy it here.
