I have a question about the ingredient "piece Ancho chile (dried, remove seeds)" on the recipe "Aztec Two Step Coffee Cake" from susan g. I have some ancho chile powder. What is the volume measure for a one inch piece of the dried ancho chile once it is ground?

It's pretty small.

Ballpark estimates: One large ancho = a teaspoon or a little less, ground. A one-inch piece = maybe one-fifth of a chile. So, somewhere between 1/8 and 1/4 teaspoon.

I'd go with a big pinch and call it a day, myself.

I would agree that a teaspoon is about right.

whatever you do, add some, finish combining your batter, and taste. you may want more of it or other seasonings.

The amount of ancho I used does not give a 'hot' taste, more of an enhancing, marrying effect on the other spices. Since it will be powdered, your powder will be fine -- I'd guess 1/4 tsp, or more.
