For Father’s Day this year, I wanted to make a little something special this year, I made my dad these luxurious, rich dark Guinness Chocolate brownies and he absolutely loved them. I usually make the Hummingbird brownie recipe and he usually loves that but he liked these more. Well not as much as my mum who just kept of eating them!!! lol 

I actually adjusted the original recipe as and added a bit of brown sugar and coffee just to change the texture and taste. I think by adding the brown sugar, it added to the extra googeyness!

For those of you that wanted to make Father’s Day a little magical, by making these brownies you would get a very happy daddy :).

Love you Dad, your the best!

  1. 250ml - Guinness
  2. 200g - dark chocolate into small cubes
  3. 100g - milk chocolate into small cubes
  4. 200g - unsalted butter into small cubes
  5. 200g - sugar
  6. 100g - soft brown sugar
  7. 3 - eggs
  8. 2 tbsp - cocoa powder then add up to 150g plain flour
  9. 1 tsp - vanilla extract
  10. 1 tsp - espresso coffee
  11. a pinch of salt
  1. 1. Grease and line a 8" square tin or anything similar to that size.
  2. 2. In a small pan pour the Guinness and place the dark chocolate and butter in glass bowl on top actually as a bain marie clever! Let this melt down on a low/medium heat (not high as the Guinness will burn), this took a very long time and I was getting a bit fed up! but be patient. When you think it's half way there preheat the oven to 175°C.
  3. 3. In another bowl beat together your eggs and sugar with the pinch of salt until well combined. Gradually add the flour, a quarter at a time, and beat it all in before adding the next batch.
  4. 4. When the chocolate and butter are melted and combined, slowly add the chocolate a bit at a time as you don't want your eggs to scramble.
  5. 5. Add the coffee into the Guinness reduction and stir. The Guinness needs to be reduced to 125ml, add this into the brownie mixture and stir until combined.
  6. 6. Pour into your tin, then break up your milk chocolate and put it into the brownie bake for 35 minutes.
  7. 7. Allow to completely cool before slicing if you aren't resisted to cut them up whilst warm! They can be either cut in 9 to 24 pieces depending on how big of a slice you want it.
