Over a Cup of Coffee: Nutella Brownies
This week’s recipe was contributed by Catherine Mills, of Craig. The brownies are delicious.
To make Nutella Brownies, you will need these ingredients: 2 sticks butter, 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup nutella, 4 large eggs, 1 1/4 cups cocoa butter, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon espresso powder (optional), 1 tablespoon vanilla,
1 1/2 cups flour, and a 10-ounce package Hershey’s milk chocolate chips.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a 9×13-inch baking dish.
In a small sauce pan, over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in sugar and continue to cook for 1 to minutes, stirring constantly. Do not boil.
Remove from heat and stir in nutella. Let cool.
Pour butter mixture into a large bowl or stand mixture; beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, espresso powder and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
Stir in flour and baking melts until just combined.
Spread into prepared baking dish (batter will be very thick and sticky) and bake for 30 to 35 minutes until tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should look set and the center should still look slightly moist, but not uncooked.
Easter is just two weeks away, can you believe it? You might choose to bake some Nutella Brownies and arrange them on a pretty plate with cupcakes that are frosted with pastel-colored icings and jellybeans. Thanks so much for the recipe, Catherine.

I spent this past Saturday morning preparing for Sunday’s lunch branding — at least what I could get done early. I cooked pasta and boiled eggs. I made a gelatin salad. I decided to bake a banana cake, a family favorite, for dessert.
