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!


  1. They look delicious!
    I love macademia nuts, fantastic addition.
    Nice job!

  2. Cake AND brownies for the 4th? Quite the baker! They look great - even the "floor samples"! I agree, I usually use one long sheet of foil or parchment to line, so there's 2 "handles" to pull up the brownie base. Much to hard otherwise - glad you enjoyed the Mac nuts - I have some in my freezer.... gives me an idea. Loved these brownies as well!
