Let's make the American Walnut Brownie
In a bowl, beat eggs and sugar together until sugar dissolves.
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter together. Once chocolate butter mixture comes to room temperature, mix it into egg-sugar solution. Add vanilla essence, Coffee powder and Cocoa powder.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 160 °C and place a parchment paper in an 8x8 square baking tin.
Add walnuts and prepare a lump free batter. Now pour this batter into the baking tin.
Bake it at 160 °C for 25 minutes. Once done, take out your Brownie and keep it on a wired rack for a few minutes before you de-mould it.
De-mould baked brownie, cut it and serve it (I got 12 pieces of 2x2 in size).
