I am constantly tweaking recipes to make it not just good, but great!
Now I know the idea of hot sauce in brownies sounds a little off…… but trust me when I tell you that adding Habanero in this recipe makes amazingly moist, flavorful brownies!
Blueberry & Hot Sauce Brownie Recipe
This recipe is tweaked from our favorite brownie recipe. Seeing as though we are in blueberry season I added some super healthy, antioxidant rich blueberries and my secret ingredient – hot sauce to give our favorite recipe a bold summer makeover!
Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 9×13 pan.
Mix 4 eggs in a bowl.
Add 2 cups of sugar.
Next mix in 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa, 1/2 teas baking powder, 1/2 teas salt, and 1 teas vanilla.
Add 1 1/2 cup flour and 1 cup melted butter [I used Target brand organic salted].
Now add in a small container (6oz) of blueberries.
Not to give it some rich boldness, add in 1 1/2 teas El Yucateco Green Hot Sauce. [I know it sounds odd, but it won’t make it spicy, just give it a rich, full flavor to your chocolate!]
If you want to make it extra chocolaty feel free to add in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips [any kind]. I think dark chocolate are extra good with the blueberries.
Spread brownie batter in your prepared pan and bake 25-30 minutes.
Allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting. Your family will love the rich boldness the secret ingredient adds to these brownies! For your leftover hot sauce, check out El Yucateco hot sauce recipes.
