Ingredients

CAJETA SAUCE:

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt chocolate and butter in double boiler, add sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Place chocolate mixture in a mixing bowl and fold in flour, salt and baking powder. Add pecans and chile powder. Pour mixture into a deep 9 by13 greased pan and bake in oven for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cut into 3 inch squares. Serve with Cajeta Sauce, cinnamon ice cream, and sifted cocoa powder.;

CAJETA SAUCE:

Stir together the milk, sugar, corn syrup, and cinnamon stick in medium size heavy pot or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Dissolve the baking soda in 1 tablespoon water, remove the milk from the heat, and stir in the soda mixture, having a spoon ready to stir the mixture down if it bubbles up. Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat, until the mixture thickens into a pale-gold syrup, about 25 minutes. At this point, begin stirring very frequently as the mixture thickens into a caramel-brown syrup that's the consistency of maple syrup, about 10 minutes more. Strain the cajeta sauce through a fine mesh strainer set over a large measuring cup. Let cool for a few minutes, then stir in the sherry, rum or brandy (plus a little water, if necessary, to bring it to 1 1/2 cups). Refrigerate covered. When cold, the cajeta sauce should have the consistency of thin corn syrup.;
