German Chocolate Brownies

1 stick butter
4 ounces sweet baking chocolate
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small saucepan over very low heat, melt 1/2 stick butter and chocolate together; set aside to cool to room temperature. Grease a 9 inch square pan. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat eggs until thick and lemon colored. Gradually beat in white sugar and vanilla. With a wire whisk, fold in melted chocolate mixture and flour mixture until batter is well blended, scraping down side of bowl frequently with a rubber spatula. Turn batter into prepared pan, leveling surface.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until center is firm and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove pan to a rack and let cool 30 minutes. When brownies have cooled, in a small saucepan, bring remaining 1/2 stick butter, brown sugar and cream to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and cook, stirring until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in pecans and coconut. Spread topping over brownie layer in pan. Let cool, cut, and serve.
