Muscovado Brownies

200 g dark chocolate
200 g butter
2 Tbsp strong black coffee
100 g dark muscovado sugar
4 eggs, yolks and whites separated

Beat egg yolks with the remaining muscovado until pale. Stir in melted chocolate mix. Sift over flour and salt and fold in.

Beat the egg whites stiff and carefully stir in. Line 20×20 cm baking pan with baking paper and pour the batter in. Bake in a preheated oven on 180°C for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Melt muscovado and heavy cream in a double boiler. Add chocolate and butter and stir until it’s melted and smooth. Let cool a bit and pour over the baked brownie. Toss hazelnuts over.

    Odlični su Marija. Ja volim moje da su ovako kompaktni, skoro vlažni. Volim seckane orahe onako uzduž da ubacim, ali do sada nisam uspela da kopiram one koje Hleb i Kifla prodaje na komad. Možda tebi uspe!

    These look so yummy! I’m going to have to see if I can find muscovado, if I can’t is it similar to brown sugar? I really want to make these!

    Also I want to tell you that finally our lives have finally come into some sembelance of normal although a lot has changed! However, I’ve now the time to actually keep up on my reader and I look forward to catching up here!

      Hello Shelby!

      Yes, you can substitute muscovado with brown sugar. But, if you are able to find muscovado, make sure you get dark one for these brownies. Light muscovado is probably OK too and it’s more similar to brown sugar.

    In what section of a grocery store would you be most likely to find muscovado? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it.

      In my country we have an aisle in the supermarkets with all kinds of sugars. I found it there. I’ve also updated the post with the link to the one sold at Amazon.

    Hey :-)
    My name is Alexandra and I totally like your blog and your brilliant recipes.
    I didn´t try a lot of them myself yet, but I had to try these brownies after drooling over your pictures for a while.
    What can I say?
    They are perfect :-) Ok, I had to use brown sugar instead of muscovado, because I do not even know this kind of sugar nor do I have it at home.
    But still these brownies turn out to be the best ones I have ever made :-)
    Thanks for sharing this great recipe with us!
    Greetings from Germany

    I baked the brownies exactly as described in a 28 cm porcelain form for my colleagues. Consistency and taste were perfect. I can only recommend this recipe and will replace my old one! Next time I’ll try to replace the flour with powdered almonds – just to know. Thanks Israel for sending the link to Palachinka

      Julia, thank you! I like the idea of powdered almonds, if you do try it out like that, please let me know how it was.
