Chef Chuck's Chocolate Cinnamon Brownies


Brownies al Cioccolato Cannella


These chocolate brownies had a little twist with the added cinnamon spice. I like to keep these brownies in the refrigerator it seems to enhance the flavors. A great pick me up anytime of the day or night!


Chocolate Cinnamon Brownies
1/2 cup sugar
13 tablespoons butter, 1 stick
plus 5 tablespoons
pinch of salt
1 1/4 cup chocolate, chopped
4 eggs, separated
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
optional: walnuts, chopped


Melt chocolate in double boiler, in a mixer beat sugar, butter and a pinch of salt. Slowly add melted chocolate then add 4 egg yolks one at a time. With mixer on low add flour and cinnamon. In a separate bowl whip egg whites and add another pinch of salt, till stiff peaks form, fold into batter. Butter or spray an 9 inch pan, put parchment paper on the bottom, pour in the batter, top with nuts and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

  1. i always add cinnamon to my brownies; it really brings out the chocolate flavor especially if you use a high cacao chocolate.
