BARGAIN SHELF, BROWN SUGAR CINNAMON AND ESPRESSO CHIPS

Confession here, I am thrifty and love the bargain shelf at Kroger. That bargain shelf in the Vining’s Kroger in Atlanta, GA is responsible for this brown sugar cinnamon cake.

My thrifty self and I were in the Vining’s Kroger last Sunday perusing the bargain shelf and I saw Toll House Espresso Chips for $1. Something I wouldn’t buy for regular price, but this was a big steal.

These chips sounded fallish to me and it’s time we food bloggers start putting out our fall recipes.

So, what about that Southern Living Brown Sugar Pound Cake I’ve been dying to make dressed up with some cinnamon and espresso chips?

Friends, I spent the rest of Sunday baking this cake, tasting a couple of pieces (yes, more than one) of it, taking pictures of it and handing it out to neighbors (it received rave reviews from them).

This $1 purchase turned into quite a delicious and valuable investment. The brown sugar and cinnamon blend gave this a scrumptious coffee cake flavor. That was then topped off with the coffee flavor of the espresso chips.

This brown sugar cinnamon cake is a heavenly melody of FALLbulous flavors. It made me yearn for a slight chill in the air (not gonna happen in late July in Atlanta, but a girl can dream) and to look out and see falling leaves.

This simple cake is a must for my fall recipe line up. I can’t wait to serve this to the girls at an autumn brunch.

BTW, if you can’t get your hands on espresso chips, chocolate chips or butterscotch chips will blend in just as well.

CAN I USE BROWN SUGAR FOR CAKE?

I love, love, love brown sugar and have gotten where I substitute it for white sugar in some recipes. Until recently I never would have done this, but it’s worked out for me every time.

According to this post in Escali, in most recipes, you can interchangeably use brown sugar and white sugar. However, there might be a difference in the texture of your baked goods. Brown sugar is moister than white sugar, so this will cause your baked goods to be softer and moister. Also, using brown sugar can result in your baked goods coming out darker than with white sugar.

FINAL THOUGHTS ON BROWN SUGAR CINNAMON CAKE

What a surprise this brown sugar cinnamon cake turned out to be. I love the way the brown sugar, cinnamon and espresso chips come together and create fall flavor excitement in this dense, moist pound cake.

It’s a simple and scrumptious cake that’s perfect anytime of year, but especially fall. Give it a bake this autumn, winter, spring or summer.
