TWD: Cinnamon Squares


Before I'm being labeled as a chocolate-hater, I'd like to clarify that I don't mind having chocolate in my dessert as long as it plays a supporting role, for example, plain cakes with chocolate chips or in this case, cinnamon squares with chocolate frosting.

The cinnamon squares recipe that was chosen by Tracey of Tracey's Culinary Adventures is a great choice indeed. The layer of chocolate chips, espresso powder, cinnamon and sugar mixture in between the cake go well together and it tastes even better with the chocolate frosting!

Head over to Tracey's blog if you want to give the recipe a try!

Great recipe and I've been meaning to bake this for so long. I too like my chocolate not as the "main player" but rather a supporting role. As usual the pictures are great.
