Ingredients

Blondies:
  • 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • pinch salt
Topping:
  • 1 tub (475 g) mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur
  • 30 g dark chocolate (about 1 oz) grated

Method

Blondies: In large bowl, beat brown sugar with butter until fluffy. Mix espresso powder with hot water; beat into butter mixture. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk flour with salt; stir into butter mixture in 2 additions.

Scrape into parchment paper–lined 9-inch (2.5 L) square baking pan, smoothing top. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Topping: Meanwhile, in bowl, beat mascarpone with sugar until smooth. Beat in egg. Stir in flour and coffee liqueur. Spread over blondies, smoothing top.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until surface appears dry, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely in pan for 30 minutes; refrigerate until mascarpone topping is set, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with chocolate.

To finish: Lift out onto cutting board; cut into rectangles.

Makes about 24 bars.
