3 tablespoons instant coffee powder
185 g soft butter
150 g brown sugar
3 eggs

400 g cream cheese
4 tablespoons white sugar
butter, for the form
cocoa or chocolate sprinkles or chocolate, shaving to dust the icing

This Kaffeebrownie recipe comes from a German recipe book called Coffee
Shop. I make it often, though I substitute the pecans for walnuts and
prepare the cream cheese icing with powdered icing sugar (amount
according to taste) as opposed to white sugar. by sunny_day
