This week, Tracey of Tracey's Culinary Adventures (Click for the recipe, and seriously, if you haven't been to her site, put it in your reader. She is fantastic!) chose delicious cinnamon squares. I baked these straight up - no substitutions, no changes, no creative plating. I am slightly disappointed in myself. I had a great idea of how I wanted to change it up after I had baked them. Ever heard of a Smith Island Layer cake? Well, that's what I wanted to do. After I had baked them.
Next time, my friends. I was distracted, you see, because we had 3 days of straight sunshine here. Remember how the sun had escaped from the Eastern Seaboard for about a month? Well, it was back. And better than ever. However, with its return went my creative bug. But at least I have a good tan.
Regardless, this was a mighty tasty cake. Dense and delicious, with a deliciously rich dark chocolate frosting, filled with a layer of chocolate and cinnamon delight. I love the combination of chocolate and cinnamon and I really loved this cake.
But let me ask you this, TWDers. During the making of this cake, at the step where you added the melted butter into the dry ingredients, did the look of the melted butter slowly soaking into the flour make anyone think that this is what their arteries must look like after eating this cake?
