Tuesdays with Dorie-Cinnamon Squares-Gluten Free


It is official….. I have decided to purchase stock in bittersweet chocolate. The amount of chocolate that I have used since joining this baking group is phenomenal.  LOL. I truly believe that it is Dorie’s favorite ingredient 🙂 .

Ironically…..minus the chocolate topping(just too rich)…this is one of my favorite TWD recipes(the lemon yogurt cake and the mango bread still ranking # 1).  The cinnamon, mocha and chocolate flavors mingle so nicely together.  I’m always a sucker for coffee cake type goodies. You?

My substitutions:

  • 1 cup brown rice flour, 1/4cup + 1/8cup potato starch, 1/4cup +1/8cup tapioca starch for the AP flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ground coffee in place of the ground espresso powder(didn’t have any)

Tracey of Tracey’s Culinary Adventures chose this week’s TWD. 

Check out her blog and the recipe  here.

Happy Tuesday!
