    About this recipe: This chocolate brownie is a little different than the average chocolate brownie. It's cake like, not too sweet and lightly spiced with cayenne. It's perfect for afternoon tea, general snacking or dessert.

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a 30x38cm or similar sized baking dish with baking parchment, leaving about 7.5cm of parchment 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Sieve the cocoa, flour, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and baking powder into a bowl. Mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture, stirring to blend well and pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out with moist crumbs, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the dish and use baking parchment handles to remove the brownies for slicing.
