Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3/4 cup butter or margarine
6 oz. semi sweet chocolate -- broken into small pieces
3 oz. unsweetened chocolate
3 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. chipotle powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne powder
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup raisins -- soaked overnight in beer
1/2 cup hazelnuts -- toasted and chopped
confectioners' sugar -- for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Put the butter and chocolate in a microwaveable dish and melt them together on HIGH for a few seconds at a time until the chocolate was melted. Stir well. Cool.

Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until they start to thicken. Add the sugars. Continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla and chocolate mixture.

Lightly toast the spices in a skillet over low heat, stirring often. Do not let them burn. Combine the spices and flour in a bowl with a whisk. Gently stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Gently add the raisins and hazelnuts, stirring just until combined. Don't overmix.

Pour the mixture into a greased and floured 9" round pan. Bake in a 350F oven just until set 25-30 minutes. Cool in the pan. Turn out and cut into wedges. If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar and serve with vanilla ice cream.
