Ancho Chilli Brownie Blend

5/5 from 3 Customers

Ancho chillies are one of the classic Mexican chillies, and when dried the natural sugars within the flesh caramelise and the most amazing flavours emerge - in the ancho chilli these flavours are reminiscent of dried fruits or raisins and a very subtle heat. Here, this lovely sweetness and warmth combine with the chocolate, cassia and allspice for a quintessentially Mexican flavour, providing a great end to a meal.

Ingredients:

  • 200g good quality dark chocolate - broken into pieces
  • 150g butter
  • 3 eggs (any size) - beaten
  • 110g plain flour
  • 220g soft brown sugar
  • A handful of cherries, cranberries or raisins (optional)
  • Icing sugar to dust (optional)
  • 1 portion of ANCHO CHILLI BROWNIE BLEND: (1 portion = 3 tbsp): ancho chilli, cassia, allspice, cayenne chilli

Allergens are listed in CAPITALS. May contain traces of celery, mustard and sesame
Please note if you're making a bigger batch, you'll need to scale up the fresh ingredients in proportion, but the spices only by ⅔ or it will be too intense!

Method:

  1. PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 180°C/GAS MARK 4
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, then stir in the ANCHO CHILLI BROWNIE BLEND
  3. Beat the sugar with the eggs until pale and fluffy
  4. Mix the chocolate and egg/sugar mixtures together then fold in the flour, cherries (if using) and a pinch of salt until you have a smooth glossy mixture and everything is completely incorporated
  5. Pour the mixture into a lined baking tin and bake for 15 minutes or until the centre is just set (the outside of the brownies should be springy but the centre still slightly gooey)
  6. Dust with icing sugar (if using)
