Method

30 mins
 
Preheat oven to 200 C and line the baking trays that you will be using with baking parchment.

Beat the butter, the brown sugar, the caster sugar, the egg, the vanilla extract and the milk until pale and fluffy.

Mix the flour, the salt, the bicarbonate of soda, the cocoa, the baking powder and the instant coffee in another bowl before adding the sugar to mix thoroughly into a dough.

Shape the dough into balls – if it’s too soft to shape, refrigerate and then make the balls.

Place them 5cm apart on the prepared baking trays before flattening them with a glass dipped in sugar to a thickness of about 1cm.

Bake them in for 8 to 10 minutes until they are a light golden brown.
