Tiramisu Brownies

My son-in-law is a tiramisu fanatic.  Last year for his birthday I made Tiramisu.  It was a pain.  This year I made Tiramisu Brownies.  Much easier and they must have been a hit because there weren’t any left.  See what you think:

Ingredients:

  • 12 squares (1 ounce each) semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/3 cups plus ¼ cup sugar, divided
  • 8 eggs, divided
  • 1 cup cake flour (or 1 cup minus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour)
  • ¼ cup instant coffee granules or espresso powder (I used the coffee granules)
  • 2 cartons (8 ounces each) Mascarpone cheese (in the deli section at my grocery store)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking cocoa

Directions:

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 flour and coffee granules; add to chocolate mixture.  Beat on low speed just until combined; set aside.

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

Pour 4 cups of chocolate batter into a greased 13x9x2 pan.  Spread with filling.  Top with remaining batter, spreading evenly to completely cover filling.

Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until center is almost set and brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan.  Cool on a wire rack.  Dust with cocoa.  Cut into squares.  Store in the refrigerator.  Yield:  3 dozen (nope, not unless you cut tiny pieces – my family got 12 servings out of it).
