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.
We made this for a homeschool celebration and LOVED IT!! I tried it with chili powder because I was serving it to kids, but look forward to trying it with cayenne next time. Really like how the strawberries went with it, I even added sliced strawberries to my leftover slice. YUM! Thank you for this recipe.
I didn't add the chocolate glaze since the sugar is technically not vegan and my friend (who I was cooking for) is very strict. I also used apple sauce instead of oil out of convenience. I love the flavour of mexican chocolate and enjoyed this - it was fluffy, moist and had a pleasing kick to it. Also, this was easier to make than a lot of vegan dessert recipes out there. Thanks!
This was wonderfuly spiced. I made it for my BF on V-day to go along with the mexican theme. The next time I make this I will ommit the glaze (I didn't care for that to much). The strawberries are a great idea. Thanks for sharing. 080109- I love this cake still! I don't like overly sweet cakes so this is perfect for me. Instead of the glaze I sprinkle it with powdered sugar and add a dollop of whipped cream.
I just became vegan and have been searching for some new favorite recipes. This will definitely be one of them! I made tiny cupcakes out of the batter, used the glaze, and topped them with blueberries, raspberries, and sliced strawberries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Very pretty and very tasty.
This is a fantastic cake. Very easy to make. When I made the chocolate glaze, though, it never hardened for me and was a bit of a sloppy mess---but it was a delicious sloppy mess! Friends recommended serving the cake with a bottle of Cholula hot pepper sauce on the side, stating it takes the cake to a whole new level! Fantastic, thanks for sharing.
This my most favorite chocolate cake there is! I watched the movie "Chocolate" that is where I learned that cayenne pepper & chocolate go really well together. I will also put about 1 Tablespoon of cocoa powder in my chili too. That way I don't need to add sugar to cut the acid of the tomatoes.
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.
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.
