    Not to sound ignorant but when you say 1 tablespoon espresso, you are referring to espresso powder . . .right?

      Yes, instant espresso powder. I edited the recipe to be more specific, thanks for pointing that out to me!

    I did a double take when I read the title to this recipe. In South Africa, “brookies” are old-time slang for panties! Teehee!
    Thanks for the recipe, it looks delicious!

    This looks like a nice everyday recipe. I'm bookmarking this for later. I've seen these before but never heard the term “brookies” before. Very fun. 🙂

    There are three main myths about the creation of the brownie. The first, that a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to biscuit dough. The second, a cook forgot to add flour to the batter. And thirdly, the most popular belief, that a housewife did not have baking powder and improvised with this new treat. It was said that she was baking for guests and decided to serve these flattened cakes to them. This became our beloved treat of today. Whatever may be the case; all three myths have gained popularity throughout the years due to its mysterious beginnings.’
