Chocolate Fudge Squares – Mocha Glaze

Fudge Squares:
8 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 c. gran. sugar
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 egg
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. milk
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Glaze:
1 heaped c. confectioners’ sugar
1 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/4 c. brewed double-strength coffee

Butter an 8-inch square baking pan. To make squares, in large bowl, cream butter with gran. sugar and egg. In small bowl sift together flour and baking powder. Add to butter mixture, then add melted chocolate. Do not overbeat. Stir in milk, vanilla and walnut, just to blend. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated 350° oven until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan, about 30 minutes. Transfer cake to rack and cool completely. To make glaze, in medium bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, butter, chocolate and vanilla with wire whisk. Stir in coffee and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate glaze until cool, then pour over top of cake and cut into squares. (Substitute milk for the coffee if you don’t want a mocha-flavored glaze.) Serves four to six.
