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.
These were very moist and good. I loved the flavors of the cinnamon and pepper in this. I didnt have ground pequin powder so I used ground chile de arbol pepper and just a pinch of ground habanero pepper and it worked great. Even my almost 2 year old daughter liked the bowl. The spice is just right in them. Thanks for sharing this unique brownie recipe! - 18 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Used a gluten-free mix and added the spices to it. For the water needed in the mix, I used strong coffee. I repeated the coffee flavor by icing them with a mocha frosting also from this website. These were excellent and a big hit at our Hispanic themed dinner; kids and adults loved them equally. Thank you caroliney_ for sharing this recipe! - 16 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
my boyfriend and daughter loved these (I did too, but my opinion doesn't count in our house). I added a little more cayenne pepper to it and scaled down the recipe to make a batch of 20 instead of 30. Delicious! very reminiscent of my childhood on the border - 12 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
