I'm renaming this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe and calling it "Cinnamon Espresso Cake," because "Cinnamon Squares" sounds too generic and plain to me. And, this cake is anything but plain. It's a moist (contains over a stick of butter in the batter!) cinnamony cake baked with a layer of grated dark chocolate, cinnamon, sugar, & espresso powder in the middle and topped with a smooth icing made by melting dark chocolate & butter together.
"Cinnamon Squares" just doesn't do this recipe justice. In fact, "Cinnamon Espresso Cake" doesn't even do it justice. So, I'll call it "Cinnamon Espresso Multiple Orgasm Cake."
Now, that's more like it.
And, the best part? It's an easy cake to make...hand-mixed, baked in a square pan, then iced on top.
