TWD: Cinnamon Squares

These cinnamon squares were so good. And so incredibly easy to throw together. I was a little concerned that I had messed up the batter because it seemed incredibly runny but it baked up perfectly. 
You'll notice there is no chocolate icing and (you can't really tell) but there is no chocolate in the cake. As much as I love chocolate and I love cinnamon I don't really like them together. Plus not making the icing made these even faster. I did do a lite dusting of powdered sugar on top and that made these taste even better, although I would think vanilla ice cream would make them awesome too.
This awesome recipe was picked by Tracey of Tracey's Culinary Adventures, look there for the recipe. And see how all the TWD members handled this cake here.

I kinda agree about the chocolate and cinnamon. And you know what goes great with cinnamon? MAPLE!!!! I bet this would be a fantastic with a maple icing.

I love cinnamon and chocolate together! But I also love them separate and your Cinnamon Square cake looks really tasty! It would make a great breakfast treat!
