Part of my ongoing Spice Rack project! This seemed like an excellent way to try out Urfa biber in an unexpected way. I tried them out on the work crew and the other resident foodie proclaimed them ‘really special’. They’re more rich and fudgy rather than light and caky.

Urfa Biber Brownies

Servings 16 brownies


  • 3 ½ ounces unsweetened chocolate chopped
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • pinch sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tablespoon urfa biber more or less to taste
  • 3 ½ ounces dark chocolate chopped into chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment. Lightly grease with butter.
  • Combine the unsweetened chocolate and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk until the chocolate is melted. Transfer to a mixing bowl and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Add the sugar to the bowl with the melted chocolate. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the flour, salt, vanilla, and Urfa biber. Stir to incorporate. Fold in the dark chocolate chunks, if using.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish. Bake until just set, about 20 minutes.
