    Amis's Note:

    This is a rich chocolate cake with just a hint of heat. This is totally my own recipe. I originally started with just a chocolate sheet cake recipe that I wanted to spice up a little for something different. Then I remembered that the Mayan's "hot" chocolate was actually drunk cold and had been mixed with spices. It was Montezuma (1466-1520) who introduced Hernam Cortes to his favorite drink 'chocolatl' served in a golden goblet. And it was the fact that Montezuma consumed his "chocolatl" before entering his harem that led to the belief it was an aphrodisiac. :D The very first chocolate drink recipe ever published was in 1631 and called for chillies, almonds, hazlenuts, vanilla beans, cinnamon and anise among other things. I combined the two recipes and played around until I got the flavor I like. Note: This does call for almonds and hazelnuts. Posted for Zaar World Tour 05

    15. 15
      Note: If the icing is too thin for your taste, it's simple to add more cocoa or confectioners sugar until you reach the consistency wanted. Or, if it's too thick just add a bit of milk. Also, if you decide to do away with the coffee (in the cake or the icing), just replace it with cocoa. :D.

      Yum Yum! Very good. not too sweet at all! I added a little more chili powder than called for and also put it in the icing! I thought this would be time consuming, but the cake was already done by the time i had washed the dishes from it and prepared the icing! Very nice and easy, don't be scared by list! I love chocolate sheet cakes, but not reg chocolate cake and this will be made again!

      Really great sheet cake! This mades a ton of cake, it was served to residents at a seniors home, and enjoyed by all! I left out the cayenne and anise flavor, and the hazelnuts but did add the toasted almonds, I used my own buttercream recipe to top it. This cake is very moist and has a wonderful texture with the perfect amount of sweetness, in fact you might even cut the brown sugar just a bit for those who do not have a sweet tooth! a recipe I will make again often, thank you for sharing Amis!...Kittencal:)
