Coffee Squares

As suggested by the Summer Inn Bed and Breakfast in Haines, Alaska

Cake
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup hot coffee

Frosting
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup melted butter
Cold coffee

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and vanilla extract, and mix well. Into a separate bowl sift flour, salt, and baking powder. Alternately add flour mixture and hot coffee to the creamed mixture. Mix well and pour batter into a 9-inch square pan. Bake in a 350 oven for 30 minutes.

Into a small bowl sift together confectioner sugar, cocoa, and salt. Pour in melted butter, and add the cold coffee one tablespoon at a time, mixing well, to make a spreadable icing. Frost the cake when completely cooled. Serves 9.

We of course use our Carrabassett Coffee Company organic coffee, which makes the squares especially delicious.
