Turkish Coffee Brownies

Servings 8


  • 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing the pan
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour, plus extra for dusting the pan
  • 3 oz. 70% cacao chocolate (bittersweet)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 packet Starbucks VIA Italian Roast instant coffee
  • 1 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease the sides and bottom of an 8″ square pan with butter and dust lightly with flour.
  • Melt the chocolate and 8 oz. of butter together in a double boiler or a small bowl over a pot of simmering water.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and sugar together in a large bowl until the mixture is light, fluffy, and pale yellow.
  • Whisk in the VIA packet, cardamom, vanilla, and salt until well combined.
  • Remove the melted chocolate mixture from the heat and gently stir with a rubber spatula.
  • Very slowly add the chocolate to the egg mixture and mix thoroughly until well combined.
  • Sift the 2/3 cup flour into the batter and mix well.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes. Check the doneness by sticking a toothpick in the middle – if it comes out clean, the brownies are done.
  • Cool before cutting.
  • Serve dusted with powdered sugar.
