Tuesdays With Dorie – Cinnamon Squares

When Dorie tells you to use parchment paper on the bottom of your cake pan, do it.

Look at that.  Look at that crap.

I was going to put the chocolate icing on it, but frankly I like it better in its current state.  I can offer it to friends and family; “Come, brother, and feast upon a fistful of cake, for tomorrow we die.”

This is my best attempt to pretty it up.

  1. It doesn’t matter if it’s pretty as long as it’s yummy! If you forget to use parchment next time, get a towel and wet with hot water. Then wrap the bottom of your cake for a few minutes..(5 maybe?). It will come out of the pan easier!

  2. OMG you are hilarious! Mine was a flop too, so you aren’t alone. It did smell Heavenly, but something went wrong with mine. Amazingly, my ribbon didn’t sink LOL

  3. Bwahahahah!

    I didn’t parchment it…but I also didn’t take it out of the pan either.

    Great job.

  4. Ouch! I hope you and your friends enjoyed it.

  5. I would happily eat a fistful of your cake. Too funny.

  6. Mine suffered the same fate. I’m so glad to read your adventure today!!

  7. The line about “feasting up on a fistful of cake” made me laugh out loud! Love it!
