8 tablespoons (1 stick) plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter,
at room temperature
2 teaspoons powdered instant coffee
1/3 cup hot water
1−1/2 cups bleached all−purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder

2 large eggs
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar for garnish (optional)

flour mixture, alternating with the eggs, beating well after each addition

chocolate, dissolved coffee, and vanilla. Spread the batter in the prepared
