Tiramisu Brownies

This week at Kellys Korner she is showcasing desserts. This is by far one of my most favorite recipes... Tiramisu Brownies.

I first made this for a Girls Night In and it was a success. I did make a few minor changes this time and I think it turned out better, but I will be listing just the regular recipe and notate my changes by the pictures. And there are many pics after the scroll down!

The recipe:

12 squares (1oz each) semisweet chocolate
1 cup butter softened
1 1/3 cups plus 1/4 cup sugar divided
8 eggs
1 cup cake flour
1/4 cup instant coffee granules or espresso powder
2 cartons Mascarpone cheese
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking cocoa

In a large microwave-safe mixing bowl, melt chocolate. Stir until smooth; cool slightly. Beat in butter. Gradually beat in 1-1/3 cups sugar. Add six eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.Combine the flour and instant coffee granules; add to the chocolate mixture. Beat on low speed just untill combined; set aside.

For filling, in a small bowl, beat the cheese, vanilla, and remaining sugar and eggs until smooth.

Pour 4 cups of chocolate batter into a greased 13-in. X 9-in. X 2-in. baking pan. Spread with the filling. Top with the remaining batter, spreading evenly to completely cover filling.Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until center is almost set and brownies begin to pull away from the sides of pan. Cool on a wire rack. Dust with cocoa. Cut into squares. Store in the refigerator. Makes 3 dozen.

These are so easy to make and so very delicious. I found this recipe in the Christmas dessert section of one of my cookbooks. I think it fits the holidays just perfectly! You will be sure to get many, many compliments.
I took some to work today and it was a huge hit! Everyone loved them and kept coming up to me to tell me how good they are. When I came home there were only about ten brownies left!
I use a slightly larger pan to bake them in because I like them a little thinner.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I hope you enjoyed it. And I can't wait to read all of your delicious recipes!

Oh, have mercy! Yummy! Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you enjoy my grandma's recipe! :) (I like it warm, but I always enjoyed snitching a spoonful out of the dish when it was stored in the fridge!)
