I fancied trying a bitter chocolate and a red chilli to accompany the lime to make a really rich mixture. We used dark muscovado sugar rather than golden caster, and only had about 50g of plain flour left after most of it went into our Christmas Cake, so had to make up the shortfall with self-raising. We used golden caster sugar to dust the top of the mixture as soon as it came out of the oven. We divided the mixture into 32 bite sized pieces rather than the 12 stated by the recipe, on account of the bitter chocolate, dark sugar and chilli. The result was a very pleasing, rich tasting yet light textured brownie. The flavour of the lime was subtle and neither it nor the chilli overpowered the rich chocolate”.
