The Baked Spicy Brownie

Recipe by Debbie R.
READY IN: 40mins




  • Preheat oven to 350. Butter sides and bottom of a glass or light-colored metal 8x8-inch pan.
  • Whisk together flour, salt, cocoa powder, chili powder and cinnamon.
  • Melt chocolate and butter (either in the microwave or on top of a double boiler). Whisk in both sugars. Let stand until room temp, about 20 minutes.
  • Add eggs; whisk to combine. Add vanilla and ginger; whisk again. Don't overbeat if you want fudgey brownies.
  • Sprinkle flour-cocoa mixture over the chocolate mixture. Using a spatula (not the whisk!) fold the dry into the wet until there is just a trace amount of the flour mixture visible.
  • Pour batter into pan and smooth top. Bake for 27-30 minutes until toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Cool completely before cutting and serving.
