Tiramisu Brownie

12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped


1 cup butter, softened

1-1/3 cups plus 1/4 cup sugar, divided

8 eggs

1 cup cake flour

1/4 cup instant coffee granules or espresso powder

2 cartons (8 ounces each) Mascarpone cheese

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking cocoa

Directions

In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate. Stir until smooth; cool slightly. Beat in butter. Gradually beat in 1-1/3 cups sugar. Add six eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Combine flour and coffee granules; add to chocolate mixture. Beat on low speed just until combined; set aside.

For filling, in a small bowl, beat the cheese, vanilla, remaining sugar and eggs until smooth.

Pour 4 cups of chocolate batter into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Spread with filling. Top with remaining batter, spreading evenly to completely cover filling.

Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until center is almost set and brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan.

Cool on a wire rack. Dust with cocoa. Cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 3 dozen.
