My perfect winter combo

 
 

CINNAMON

My Best Cinnamon combo

This time of the year the best addition to my evenings is cinnamon.


It's a known fact that i'm a cinnamon addict; i sprinkle it on just about everything i eat, drink or serve,


But during cold weather especially there's no stopping me :)


Here is my perfect combo of cinnamon:


1. Using "Philosophy Soap"
(Cinnamon scented of course) on a daily basis.



2. Eating brownies.

LOTS OF BROWNIES.

Mexican style.

On a daily basis as well.


My best recipe is adapted from the wonderful "in the little red house" :


9 Tablespoons butter (COLD!)

1 and 1/4 cups brown sugar

3/4 and 2 Tablespoons coca powder

1 Teaspoon Mexican vanilla (if you have regular that's fine..)

2 eggs

1/2 cups flour

1/3 teaspoon cinnamon (and a bit more for sprinkling)


Heat oven 180C.

Oil a 8X8 baking pan.


Combine Coca, Sugar and butter in a microwave-friendly bowl.

Place for 30 second periods of time ,whisking after each time then replacing back in the microwave.

Repeat this until butter has melted completely.


Add vanilla and whisk well.


Add eggs, one at a time , whisking after each one is added.


Add the flour and whisk until the batter is shiny silky and flour-spotless.

Then beat for another 30 strokes.


Spread evenly in the baking pan


Bake between 20-25 minutes.


Let cool, sprinkle a bit more cinnamon on top.




Those are my two methods.

They can't fail you..no matter what the circumstances are!
