TWD: Tribute to Katherine Hepburn Brownies


This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie treat was Tribute to Katherine Hepburn Brownies. I have to confess, I felt a little sorry for them. You see, there are some weeks when I would have been really excited about brownies (especially almost flourless ones) and these were yummy brownies, but they came in the wake of a lot of other chocolate concoctions, so I didn’t muster up my usual brownie enthusiasm. The flavors of cinnamon, chocolate, and espresso in these brownies reminded me a lot of the Cinnamon Squares TWD made at the beginning of June. I said it then and I’ll say it again – it’s a terrific combination! And due to the low flour content, these are infallible brownies: you can give them a short amount of baking time for a gooey brownie or leave them in a little too long like I did and still have a chewy brownie.



This recipe gets a 7 for Deliciousness and a 2 for Effort, giving them an EDR of 3.5. Many thanks to Lisa of Surviving Oz for selecting these and designing TWD’s awesome new logo (which I need to figure out how to put on my sidebar)! You can find the recipe on Lisa’s site and see what the other bakers thought via the TWD site. I’m leaving for vacation on Thursday, so I will be attempting to bake next week’s treat in a strange kitchen. Luckily I have a couple rewinds on reserve if it doesn’t work out.

Love your triad of brownies. They seem to be huddled together plotting - perhaps a trip to the country. ;)
Have a great vacation!

They look intensely chocolaty, which is to say they look like the best brownies ever! Happy baking in a strange kitchen next week!

Low brownie enthusiasm? Not good.

Vacation? Very good.

Have a great time!

They look really wonderful. I'm a new fan of the chocolate and cinnamon combo, too. Surprisingly good! Looking forward to see how it works out for you next week. Have a wonderful vacation!

These were good, but I can see how overindulgence would dampen your enthusiasm for them. Baking in a strange kitchen next week sounds so ominous! I envision the sink on the floor, the burners spread out in every corner of the kitchen. the oven outside, and a refrigerator that doubles as a bench seat - what a strange kitchen.

Your brownies look like fudgy, chewy, chocolatey goodness to me!
Hope you have a great vacation and baking in a strange kitchen works out well for you!
PS Let me know if you figure out how to add the logo to your sidebar - I don't have a clue either!

I never thought about it being like the cinnamon squares....

These were SO good. ;) One of the best TWD so far.

I can't figure out how to get the new logo in my sidebar either so if you figure it out, please share :) Your brownies look terrific! These were a bit too fudgey for me.

Have a great vacation!

Those look just perfect.

They go onto my 'repeat' list. Probably this weekend.
