I have had a huge chocolate craving this week. I was looking for a new brownie recipe and remembered this wonderful dessert. I first spotted it over at Tasty Kitchen, by Sooz Hawkins, instantly knew I would love it. I've made it several times and even for guests. This time I wanted to change it up a bit and add cinnamon and coffee. I just love the flavor combo of cinnamon and chocolate and I think the coffee just makes the chocolate taste a little better. It is a really simple and easy recipe. You will love it I promise!
1 Cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
7 tablespoons cocoa powder, divided
1 ¼ cups sugar, divided
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ cups milk
⅓ cups melted butter
2 teaspoons brewed coffee
½ cup brown sugar
1 ½ cup hot tap water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium size bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, 3 tablespoons cocoa, and ¾ cup white sugar and cinnamon. (Set aside remaining cocoa and sugar.)
Stir in milk, melted butter, and coffee to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.
Pour the mixture into an ungreased 8-inch baking dish. (An oval Corning Ware glass dish works well.)
In a separate small bowl, mix ½ cup white sugar, the brown sugar, and 4 tablespoons of cocoa. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the batter.
Pour the hot tap water over all. DO NOT STIR!
Bake for about 40 minutes or until the center is set.
Allow to cool slightly and serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
