TWD: Katherine Hepburn Inspired Brownies
These are some of the best brownies I have ever had! The combination of coffee, cinnamon and chocolate really hit home. They were rich, moist and gooey - what a great combination - and the only way to improve on it was with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
I had some trouble getting the brownie out of the pan. After much prodding - it came loose but a few pieces hit the floor (how sad is that???) but otherwise all was good. Next time - I would probably try to line the entire pan - not just the bottom... The top was "papery" and the inside was gooey after 28 minutes in the oven (once they cooled - that is about how long the lasted too!).
I substituted semi-sweet chocolate in place of bittersweet chocolate as a personal preference. Big surprise was the chopped macadamia nuts I found on the grocer's shelf! I love macadamias and thought it would be a fun change - we were not disappointed!
