Spicy Chewy BrowniesFrom DarrenMayoff 9 years ago
- 2 oz unsweetened chocolate shopping list
- 2 oz Semi- Sweet chocolate shopping list
- 4 oz unsalted butter shopping list
- 1 and a half cups of sugar(or less if you want it less sweet) shopping list
- 1/4 tsp (or a dash) salt shopping list
- 2 tsp vanilla extract shopping list
- 2 room temp eggs (large) shopping list
- 1 cup of white flour shopping list
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder shopping list
- 1/2 to 3/4 tbsp of cayenne pepper (or more if you are a heat freak) shopping list
- 1/2 tbsp Cinannmon shopping list
- Dash or three of nutmeg (go easy on it, unless you love it) shopping list
How to make it
- 1, Preheat Oven to 350 F
- 2. Butter an 8 inch square pan lined with parchment (wax) paper – then butter the paper (wax side should be facing up.)
- 3. In a double boiler with simmering water melt the butter and chocolate (If you do not have a double boiler – use a saucepan with simmering water, and a bowl on top – the idea is to not burn the chocolate with direct heat.) Remove from heat, and cool slightly. (You do not want the chocolate to cook the eggs.)
- 4. Add the sugar and vanilla.
- 5. Mix in one egg at a time, stirring each time until blended.
- 6. Add the flour and cocoa, and spices (premix the spices and cocoa so that they are evenly blended.) Beat until it is all mixed up and sticky as hell.
- 7. Scrape, or spoon it in to the pan. Level it out. (If you like eat the leftover raw batter - be careful rawness is in there.)
- 8. Bake until it is uniformly colored with no indentation, and a toothpick comes out almost clean (you want a few moist crumbs for it to be a chewy brownie.) Aprrox 30 to 40 minutes.
- 9. Set the pan on a rack until it is cool enough to handle.
- 10. Run a paring knife around the inside edge, and then insert the pan onto a clean flat surface, and peel off the wax paper completely. Flip the brownie back onto the rack (right side up now) and let it cool.
- 11. Cut it up with a sharp knife – share (or don’t.)
- 12. Have something ready to cool down the heat (a nice glass of milk or some nice porto)
- 13. THE END!
