Mystery Mocha

My parents came over on the 4th of July for some golf and a belated Father's Day and Birthday dinner. I was excited to try out this recipe I saw on Tasty Kitchen - "Mystery Mocha." Interestingly, this was submitted to Tasty Kitchen by a dude named Larry, and that's my dad's name. Hmmm...

Anyway, make this. Soon. It was so easy to throw together and so delicious. I didn't have enough brown sugar and it definitely made a difference - but almost non-noticeable when you throw some ice cream on top.

  • ¾ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Sifted All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 piece Unsweetend Chocolate (1 Square)
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ cups Whole Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Granulated Sugar (additional)
  • 4 Tablespoons Powdered Cocoa (Not Drink Mix)
  • 1 cup Cold Strong Coffee

Sift together 3/4 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Melt square of unsweetened chocolate and butter in the microwave. Add to dry ingredients alternately with the milk and vanilla. Blend. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan.

Combine brown sugar, the 1/2 cup additional granulated sugar and cocoa powder. Sprinkle over the cake batter. Pour the one cup COLD coffee on top. This will look TERRIBLE. Bake 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Serve warm with ice cream or sweetened whip cream or whipped topping. This will serve 8. In a 9×9 square pan, you can cut 9 pieces. Best served warm.
