A Spicy Chocolate Cake

Posted on

Like chocolate cake? Like spicy food?

Then, I’ve got the recipe for you!

I can take no credit for this one, other than following the recipe and taking a picture of the result.  But, it was so delicious, I wanted to share the recipe with you. I made this cake a couple months ago for some dinner guests.  My husband was apprehensive, thinking I’d been saying ‘Chocolate Chili Cake’. I guess the idea of ground meat and kidney beans in his chocolate cake wasn’t appealing. But, rest assured.  There are no meat or beans in this cake…just dense, chocolatey goodness with just a little bit of heat.  Trust me, it works!

Flourless Chocolate-Chile Cake with Chocolate Ganache and Raspeberries

I added a chocolate ganache glaze and fresh raspberries to give the cake a little finish. To make a basic ganache, put 4 ounces of semisweet chocolate in a bowl. Bring 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp of heavy cream to a boil and immediately pour over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate completely melts.  Spread over the cake.

Sneaky babies...they're everywhere!!

Takeout for dinner tonight.  Tomorrow I will run my first 5k ever, for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure!  Think Pink!!

  1. Mmmm looks awesome! I recently tried a dark chocolate bar with chili and it was so good. I’ll have to give this one a try 🙂

  2. Oh wow! I had this recipe and then lost it some years ago – thank you for posting it – I can’t wait to make it again.
