Dense, fudgy brownies begin in a saucepan. The first and primary ingredient is the chocolate, which is melted with butter. Sugar and eggs are added, then espresso powder (for enhanced chocolate flavor intensity), vanilla and salt. Finally the flour is incorporated and the brownies are baked just until they are just done. A little underdone never hurt either, as the remaining batter condenses as it cools.
To recreate the look of a cappuccino, a white chocolate ganache is spread on top and allowed to cool completely. A light dusting of cinnamon finishes off the illusion. The espresso powder in the brownies helps these wonderful confections to taste as if you are chewing your favorite drink from the local coffee bar.
