Tuesdays with Dorie- Cinnamon Squares

Okay, so today is the beginning of a new experiment for me on the web- I'm participating in a weekly baking meme, Tuesdays with Dorie.

Audrey of food from books turned me on to this great group. She has a fantastic blog, which you should definitely check out. And she's super nice.

This week's recipe is Cinnamon Squares, a delightful coffee cake made with a cinnamon batter, a filling of cinnamon, coffee and chocolate, and for some, a chocolate frosting. I passed on making the frosting today (too much to do) but the cake came out great.

It was easy to put together and came out delicious. I needed a little more cooking time than the recipe stated but that can happen sometimes.

Have a slice! A yummy treat and good book- life doesn't get much better than that.

OMG---that sounds so yummy! Some of my favorite things-coffee, cinnamon and chocolate. It doesn't get any better than that.

These look delicious! A filling of cinnamon, coffee and chocolate - I can just taste it.

Well I have that cookbook but no time to bake. I am in the home stretch with Byatt and unable to put it down. That looks delicious and chocolate frosting would make it even yummier.

I'm reading this about 7 in the morning ... coffee is brewing. You've inspired me to finish the last brownie in the pan my daughter made yesterday (from a box mix even!) while I drink that first cup.

This looks delicious, and it sounds like you didn't miss the frosting.

This looks like it would go great with coffee in the morning (providing I made it like you did and omitted the frosting). I think I am going to really like this new feature!
