  2. Mix the cornflour, espresso powder, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
  3. Melt the chocolate and butter together in another bowl. Add in sugar and mix until well-combined. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in the vanilla essence and flour mixture. Mix until well combined.
  4. Pour brownie batter in prepared baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until set in the center. Allow to cool before cutting into pieces.
