3 oz. unsalted butter
1/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
3/4 c. white sugar
2 tsp. instant coffee or espresso
2 tsp. vanilla
6 oz. chocolate chunks
4 oz. walnuts
4 oz. pecans

Beat eggs, sugar, coffee and vanilla at high sped then switch to low speed and mix in chocolate, and then flour mixture, just til blended. Stir in chocolate chunks and nuts.
