For our taco bar Jessie wanted to make chocolate cake using Mexican chocolate,cinnamon and cayenne,she says she found this recipe in her"bag of tricks"(that's what she called her book of recipes) For once,she let me copy her recipe.This recipe was yellowed and notes added in the margins.Jessie said she hasn't made this cake in over 10 years.
They were very chocolaty with a hint of cinnamon and a hit of cayenne.I'm not a big chocolate fan,but my sons are and they LOVED these! They said they were AWESOME!
