Brownies from Cocoa Powder (Mexican Style)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon
¾ tsp chipotle powder
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (CONVECTION - 325). Grease a 9x9 inch baking pan. (Follow directions given by Mrs. Crumbliss)
2.In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in eggs. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; gradually stir into the egg mixture until well blended. Stir in optional items, if desired. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
3.Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, (CONVECTION - 15-20) or until the brownie begins to pull away from edges of pan. Let cool on a wire rack before cutting into squares. The longer they cool, they easier they are to cut - they will crumble if cut before fully cooled.
