 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         Bittersweet chocolate -- finely chopped
    1      cup           Unsalted butter -- cut into
      1/3  cup           Strong brewed coffee
    4      large         Eggs -- at room temp
    1 1/2  cups          Sugar
      1/2  cup           Flour
    8      ounces        Walnuts -- chopped
 
 Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375~. Line a 9x13
baking pan with a doule thickness of aluminum foil so that the line foil extends
2 beyond the sides of the pan. Butter the bottom and sides of the foil-lined
pan. In the top of a double boiler set over hot, not simmering water, melt the
chocolate, butter and dissolved coffee, stirring frequently, until smooth. Cool
the mixture, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, using a
handheld electric mixer set at high speed, beat the eggs for 30 seconds, or until
foamy.
 Gradually add the sugar and continue to beat for 2 minutes, or until the mixture
is very light and fluffy. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually beat in the
chocolate mixture until just blended.
 Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour. Stir in the walnuts. Do not overbeat the
mixture. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Bake for 28-30 minutes, or
until the foggies are just set around the edges. They will remain moist in the
center. Cool the foggies in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Cover the pan
tightly with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnlight or for at least 6 hours.
Remove the top foil and run a sharp knife around the edge of the foggies. Using
two ends of the foil as handles, lift the foggies onto a large plate and peel off
the foil. Invert them again onto a smooth surface and cut into 16 rectangles.
 Makes 16 foggies.
