This week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe is a variation on the much talked about Katharine Hepburn Brownies. Try doing a Google search on "Katharine Hepburn Brownie"... you can do some serious research with 8,000+ results! This recipe is Dorie Greenspan's riff on the original recipe, with the addition of ground espresso, cinnamon, and chopped bittersweet chocolate. I've been a bit flaky with my brownie research, so this gave me a great excuse to get back into my brownie baking mode. I loved the simplicity of this recipe, and you only need to dirty one bowl (or in this case, one saucepan). I followed the recipe as written, and baked them for 30 minutes.
As we all know, choosing a favorite brownie is a matter of personal preference. Unfortunately, this wasn't my kind of brownie. I loved the subtle coffee and cinnamon flavors, but the gooey fudgy texture wasn't my favorite (I'm a cakey kinda gal).
