3/4 pound butter, melted
1-1/4 pound granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon coffee extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup whole eggs
2 ounces cocoa powder
8 ounces flour
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Combine the melted butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Blend well until
smooth. Add the salt, vanilla, coffee, and cinnamon, and blend until smooth.
Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and mix until smooth. Combine the cocoa powder
and flour, and sift. Add the cocoa-flour mixture to the butter mixture and
to form a batter. Add 1/2 of the nuts and blend well.
Grease a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Pour the batter into the dish. Sprinkle
the surface with the remaining 1/2-cup of nuts. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes.
