Spicy Brownies

Time: 50 mins

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 finely chopped sauteed jalapeno (optional)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350; prepare 9x9-inch or 9x13-inch baking pan with butter or butter flavored non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2 Cream butter with mixer; margarine or spreads are not recommended.
  • 3 Add sugar and red pepper to the butter; cream with mixer until fluffy.
  • 4 Using a wooden spoon, stir in vanilla, almond extract, and eggs until just combined; do not overbeat; do not use mixer; overbeating results in brownies that rise too much during baking, and then fall as they cool.
  • 5 If spicier brownies are desired, add jalapenos.
  • 6 In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, cinnamon, and salt; adding ingredients separately to butter mixture can result in overbeating.
  • 7 Gently stir the dry ingredients into butter mixture; if desired add chocolate chips to the butter mixture with the dry ingredients; stir until combined.
  • 8 Spread mixture into prepared pan; if desired, evenly spread walnut pieces over the top of the batter.
  • 9 For a 9x9-inch pan, bake on center rack for 35 to 40 minutes; for a 9x13-inch pan, bake on center rack for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • 10 Cool on a wire rack and cut into squares.
