TWD - Cinnamon Squares
This week’s TWD recipe is Cinnamon Squares and was chosen by Tracey from Tracey’s Culinary Adventures. This is one recipe that I have had my eye on making for a while. The swirl of chocolate and cinnamon through the middle of the cake looks so appealing! The cake is meant to be iced with a chocolate icing, but mine isn’t – I will explain why below.
Friends of my husband’s called on Sunday morning to say that they were in Auckland and would be popping in on Sunday afternoon, so I decided to make my cinnamon squares for them coming. But they arrived while the cake still had about 15 minutes to go in the oven. So, I had to serve the cake warm with no icing on top. I was going to ice the rest of the cake, but there wasn’t actually much left of it.
I enjoyed the cake warm - it is a fairly robust cake and seemed to be a bit lighter when warm. I bet it was delicious with the chocolate icing on top, but it was also a nice plain cake. Very easy to make and I guess you could make lots of variations – raspberry jam swirled through the middle would be nice.
