flour
1/4 tsp

2 oz

Step-By-Step

2Butter an 8 inch square baking pan.

3To make the squares in large bowl, cream butter with sugar and egg.

4In small bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Add to butter mixture.

5Then add the melted chocolate, being careful not to overbeat. Add the milk, vanilla and walnuts, stirring just to blend. Pour batter into prepared pan.

6Bake until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan and top springs back when pressed lightly, about 30 minutes. Allow cake to cool completely.

7Meanwhile, to make the glaze, in medium bowl, mix the sugar, butter, chocolate and vanilla.

8Stir in coffee and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate glaze until cool, then pour over the top of the cake and cut cake into squares.

9Beating by hand ensures a rich creamy texture for these confections. Virtually any varietal or blend of coffee complements their intense chocolate flavor.
