Espresso Brownie Cake

There has been some research to support that drinking coffee may be beneficial for staving off the onset of Alzheimer's. That research is not conclusive, but it gives coffee drinkers one more reason to have a cup! For the non-coffee drinkers out there, here is a sweet way to slip a little coffee into your diet while adding beneficial antioxidants.

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup strong coffee
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 teas baking soda
1 teas vanilla
1/2 teas cinnamon
1 cup chopped dark chocolate
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 8" or 9" square pan with oil. Combine flour and sugar in mixing bowl. Heat butter, coffee, and cocoa in a saucepan, bring to a boil. Pour hot mixture over flour mixture and stir well. Add buttermilk, egg, baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon and chopped chocolate. Mix well. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 20 - 25 minutes. Let cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
