I found this recipe a while ago, but I changed it quite a bit, so here is my version. This type of brownie is not too sweet nor too dense. I would definitely say this is a mature brownie.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 12x15-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving about 3 inches of paper overhanging 2 sides to use as handles.
  2. Place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl, and cook on Medium until the butter is about half melted, about 1 minute. Mash the butter with sugar until well combined, and stir in eggs one at a time, incorporating each one before adding the next. Mix in vanilla extract.
  3. Sift the cocoa, flour, cinnamon, pequin pepper, salt, and baking powder into a bowl. Sprinkle in any salt caught in the sifter. Mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture, stirring to blend well, and pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan, and use parchment paper handles to remove the brownies for slicing.

These were very moist and good. I loved the flavors of the cinnamon and pepper in this. I didnt have ground pequin powder so I used ground chile de arbol pepper and just a pinch of ground habanero pepper and it worked great. Even my almost 2 year old daughter liked the bowl. The spice is just right in them. Thanks for sharing this unique brownie recipe!

Used a gluten-free mix and added the spices to it. For the water needed in the mix, I used strong coffee. I repeated the coffee flavor by icing them with a mocha frosting also from this website. These were excellent and a big hit at our Hispanic themed dinner; kids and adults loved them equally. Thank you caroliney_ for sharing this recipe!

my boyfriend and daughter loved these (I did too, but my opinion doesn't count in our house). I added a little more cayenne pepper to it and scaled down the recipe to make a batch of 20 instead of 30. Delicious! very reminiscent of my childhood on the border
