Mochaccino Cheesecake Brownies are a variation of my Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies but when I went to make them I wanted the exact recipe. So this is it. A coffee flavoured base, cinnamon in the cream cheese layer and more coffee in the chocolate glaze. Take these anywhere and you will make people happy.
For gluten free bakers fudgy brownies are a great place to start. It is easy to be successful and everyone loves them. Even when they don’t turn out exactly like you wanted people gobble them up without complaint.

Cake is light and airy while brownies are dense and fudgy. Brownies typically have half as much flour as cake. There are numerous variations among brownie recipes and of course some recipes are bigger. A general guide is to choose a recipe with only one-half cup of flour. Just pay attention to this until you find your perfect brownie recipe(s).
These brownies are made with quinoa flour. It is expensive compared to other gluten free flours but it works well as a single flour in brownies. It is also easy to find at health food stores, well-stocked grocery stores and online.
If you are experimenting with other flours you might be interested in reading my blog post series on How To Use Gluten Free Flours.
Every kitchen needs a few tools and two square baking pans is the most basic tool. You can bake so many things with just these two pans I still think it’s amazing. From granola bars to sushi pizza to Australian Lamingtons there is no end to the value of these pans. You don’t need the most expensive ones but so yourself a favour and don’t buy the cheapest ones either.
My mom always served her brownies right out of the pan. But somehow I became obsessed with making my brownies look nice…really nice. I learned to cut them precisely using a ruler and a knife dipped in hot water.
In this photo I simply arranged them on a glass, pedestal tray. I pinched a few pansies from my garden and voila, a gourmet presentation. If you like the idea of using edible flowers check out this post, How To Use Edible Flowers in the Kitchen. Then you can grow some, it’s easy.
