A bit too spicy for me, but the rest of the gals at the Cinco de Mayo party loved it- especially 3 of them. I hate baking (unknown by the menu person) but this one was so easy to make I'd do it again. I drizzled a little of the chocolate on then left the rest in a bowl with a spoon for self service. Several gals asked for the recipe- I sent them the link.people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful... Was this review helpful to you?

We were split on this cake. Two of us loved it, the other four did not. Perhaps they were expecting chocolate cake, but got a surprise and they're just not into the surprise. Moist, flavorful and a tiny bit spicy.people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful... Was this review helpful to you? Yes | No We don't know who you are.

This is a really wonderful, delicious cake which is a beautiful glossy brown. However, I find it to be a very small recipe and generally double it.people found this review Helpful.

WOW!!! This is a fabulous recipe!! It is very easy to make, yet the taste is complex...the layers of flavor that the cinnamon, and chili lend to the chocolate are incredible (I used chipotle, my favorite!!!)...I also think that the balsamic enhanced the cocoa in a new way that I found interesting!! The amount of vanilla may seem like a lot, but the essence it brings in my opinion is essential. There is a wonderful lingering sweet heat that each moist mouthful leaves behind...my husband thought I had used an expensive liqueur to flavor the batter!! I added 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and had to leave out the strawberries this time because I kind of decided to make this spur of the moment while playing the ZWT3 game - it was still delicious, even "berry-less" - I used the glaze alone anyway and was not shy about pouring it all over the cake... fresh chocolate covered berries would definitely add an even greater level of decadence to this already scrumptious treat....My goodness I'm glad I tried this...I expect to make this again and again!! - Thank you so much Remembering Amy.people found this review Helpful.
