These are GREAT brownies. I added more chilli powder for more of a "poke". Don't forget to add the cocoa powder as it's been left out of the method. Also, I took them out after 20 minutes so I got a gooey centre - I think it would have been more cake-like if left in for 40 mins.

No mention of the cocoa powder in the method, might want to fix that. I folded it in with the flour and it was fine.
