This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was selected by Tracey of Tracey’s Culinary Adventures. These tasty squares have cinnamon and sugar mixed into the batter, as well as a layer of chocolate, with even more cinnamon and sugar added to it. This dessert (breakfast?) is pleasantly light, and easy to put together.
I opted not to add the espresso powder, nor the chocolate icing at the end. I stole a bite from a corner after the squares had cooled, and felt that there was a nicely subtle chocolate background to the dish, and decided adding more icing might overdo it.
I'm assuming that this treat was initially created as a dessert, as it is fairly sweet and has a lot of chocolate, but I don't see a reason why it couldn't be a decadent breakfast. It's fairly light, and the strong cinnamon flavor is definitely reminiscent of cinnamon rolls.
