This one's special. It uses self-rising flour which is unusual for brownies. The result is still a dense, sticky horrendously chocolatey brownie that's light on you, instead of pulling you down. The kick here is provided by the shot of espresso in it. The recipe can easily be customized...if you want to add half a up of white chocolate chips in it or maybe a couple of tablespoons of candied ginger. —Amrita

  • Serves 9 pieces
  • 60 gms self-rising flour
