Homemade Organic Mexican Spiced Brownies

I was inspired by The Latin Kitchen to make these brownies.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup organic unbleached white flour
  • 1 tsp. organic ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. organic ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. ground chipotle pepper, optional
  • 1-1/4 sticks organic pasture butter
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 cup organic raw cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Real Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Homemade Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 2 large organic pasture eggs

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Preheat oven to 325° Fahrenheit.
  2. Butter an 8″ x 8″ baking dish; Set aside.
  3. Whisk together flour, salt, cinnamon, cayenne, and chipotle (if using), and set aside.
  4. Combine the butter, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a double boiler over barely simmering water.
  5. Once the chocolate mixture is hot to the touch, set aside until warm.
  6. Stir in the vanilla with a wooden spoon (or other non-reactive material)
  7. Add one egg, and stir the mixture vigorously.
  8. Add the other egg, and stir the mixture vigorously.
  9. Stir in half the flour and spice mixture, and whisk again until smooth; Repeat with other half of flour and spice mixture.
  10. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until set in the center.
  11. Let cool completely before lifting from pan and cutting. (For even cutting: chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before cutting.)
  12. Enjoy!
