READY IN: 24hrs 35mins




  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Prepare a 9-inch square baking pan by lining it with foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray or brushing it with vegetable oil.
  • Melt the semisweet chocolate and the butter in a double boiler (a pan set over a hot water bath); stir until smooth.
  • Add vanilla and cinnamon; stir thoroughly to combine.
  • Remove mixture from the heat and cool to room temperature.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the eggs on high speed until very frothy and about triple in volume (approximately 5 minutes).
  • Fold half of the beaten eggs into the chocolate mixture and combine.
  • Then fold in the remaining egg.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  • Place the pan of brownie batter into a larger pan, like a roasting pan and fill that pan with hot water half way up the side of the smaller pan containing the batter.
  • Place the pan on the middle rack of the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Turn off the oven but keep the brownies in the closed oven for another 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, remove the brownies pan from the larger water bath pan and place it on a wire rack to cool while making the glaze.
  • To make the glaze, heat the cream and the dark chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water.
  • Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the hot glaze over the brownies and smooth it out with a spatula.
  • Set the pan aside to cool completely.
  • When cool, cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Cut chilled brownie into 12 squares.
  • Brownies taste best when allowed to come to room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
