Like every other TWD baker, I get really excited around the first of the month and obsessively check the website for the list of the new recipes wondering what Dorie masterpiece I can screw up this month!
I was pretty sure that I could handle June's first recipe, Cinnamon Squares, chosen by Tracey of "Tracey's Culinary Adventures". I mean, who hasn't made a coffee cake at least once in their lifetime??
Then I read the recipe and figured out that this was not your traditional coffee cake. It had a chocolate frosting which I have to admit just didn't sound to tasty. Now a streusel topping? That's good eats!
And I seriously considered changing the topping but after reading all of the comments I was still on the fence. Those that had already baked this highly recommended the chocolate topping.
I still wasn't sure. I waited until this came out of the oven and actually tasted a bite before making the frosting. It was good, but definitely needed something more, so I bit the bullet.
You need to make the frosting.
I went the "playing around" route with this one and made the cappuccino version, but I think this one's a winner either way.
Now, I just need to find someone to eat the rest of it.
PS....be sure to check back next week for the recipe I'm sure to screw up....Dorie's Perfect Party Cake.
