Cappuccino Cake Brownies

This is a great little brownie recipe. If you like a cake-like brownie with a hint of coffee and cinnamon these are a perfect choice. As far as brownies go, I would say this would be one of the lower fat ones, seeing as it doesn't call for a huge amount of butter or oil. So give them a try and let me know what you think!

1 Tab. of instant coffee granules
2 tea. of boiling water
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup of butter/marg., softened
1/2 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup of flour
1/4 tsp. of cinnamon

In a small bowl, dissolve coffee in water; set aside. In a mircrowave-safe bowl or saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips. In a small mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, melted chocolate and coffee mixture. Combine flour and cinnamon; add to the creamed mixture and mix well.

Pour into a greased 8 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes (my oven is always less). Check doneness with a toothpick in center of brownies. Don't overbake! Cool and cut into squares. I like to sprinkle with powdered sugar. Enjoy!!!
