This Molten Coffee Brownie Pudding is my new favorite way to enjoy brownies. You may never go back to your “average” brownie. A super simple chocolate brownie mix made with eggs, cocoa powder, a touch of coffee (coffee’s key so don’t skip it), and sweet chocolate chunks. All baked together until puffed on top, but warm, fudgy, and almost molten-like inside. Delicious when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Happy, happy Friday! Celebrating today (for no reason) with a little sweet chocolate. I figured that it’s Friday, and chocolate is always a great way to start the weekend. Especially when it’s easy to bake up and can be eaten warm.

Plus, Easter is just a month away. So I’m starting to roll out the fun spring desserts that are perfect for celebrating the upcoming spring holiday!

The inspiration

Around here, brownies have always been treasured. I mean who doesn’t love a brownie? My mom has been baking them from scratch since before I can remember. She didn’t make them that often because her chocolate chip cookies or Special K-bars were tried and true favorites, she’s famous for them! But she made them often enough.

However – Asher has a serious soft spot for brownies. She asks me to make Crinkle Top Brownies all the time. So when I discovered brownie pudding, it’s safe to say that I knew it would be a hit.

The details

The greatest part about this pudding is just how easy it is to throw together and bake up. You don’t even need a mixer. What you do need are eggs, a little cocoa powder, sugar, instant coffee, almond flour, and butter. Plenty of butter and chocolate for this one!

Just whisk it all together and bake. Yes, it’s that easy. The trickiest part of this pudding is getting the baking time just right. I’ve found it can vary slightly. I recommend starting to check the pudding after around 22 minutes of baking. You want the edges set, but the center to have a good jiggle to it.

I’ve found 22-25 minutes to be the sweet spot. But sometimes 30 minutes can be perfect too. Just keep an eye on it.

As soon as the pudding comes out of the oven, it will be very poofed on top, but it will fall as it cools.

A few special touches.

One, Kahlúa…it’s not needed, but it does add something special. The sweet liquor really helps to highlight all the rich chocolate within the recipe. As does the instant coffee.

Two, chocolate chunks (or chips) folded into the batter just before baking. The chunks are KEY. They help to create that gooey, almost molten-like center that everyone will find delicious.

You can easily serve this at room temperature or chilled. It’s always delicious, no matter what temp. I personally like it best warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Roll your eyes back, go for a second serving, good!

  • 1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
    2. Lightly butter an 8-9 inch deep skillet or pie plate.
    3. Whisk together the eggs and sugar until well combined. Add the cocoa powder, instant coffee, almond flour, and salt. Whisk in the melted butter, Kahlua, and vanilla until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips/chunks. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
    4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the pudding is puffed on top, but still wiggly in the center. The longer you bake, the more set your pudding will be. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Serve the pie warm, with vanilla ice cream. Or chill and serve chilled with whipped cream or ice cream.


Baking Time: the baking time for this can vary, start checking your pudding around 25 minutes into baking. It should never be fully set on top. It should have a little wiggle to it.

  3. If you are going to offer metric measurements that goes for the butter too as the sticks are not the same size.

    1. Hi Allison,
      Sorry for any confusion, 1 stick of butter is equal to 113 grams. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

      1. Hi Tara,
        Happy Friday! Thanks so much for sharing your feedback and trying this recipe out! Love to hear that it was enjoyed:) xxTieghan

  4. This recipe is absolutely delicious. Miss Tieghan – I have a question: Can this be made in a cupcake pan, for individual servings?

    1. Hey Steve,
      So glad you have been enjoying this recipe! I probably would not make in a cupcake pan, but if you have mini pots that would work well for you! Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

  5. Watch out for conversion !!! When I went to print the recipe it allowed for a conversion to different serving sizes. I selected 6 and after making it I had floating butter in my pan. Comparing the recipe to my daughters version of the original recipe for serving 8 the butter quantity did not adjust on the conversion as 2 servings, 4 servings, 6 servings and 8 servings all said they same amount of butter ! such an error on this conversion !

    1. Hi Cindy,
      So sorry to hear this!! The online calculator does the conversions for us, I will have to look into it! xTieghan

    2. WOW! I can’t believe how simple and delicious this was! I doubled the amount of instant coffee and didn’t use the Kahlua, and it was great. Will definitely be making this again soon.

      1. Hi Emma,
