Mexican Hot Chocolate Cake Recipe


Mexican hot chocolate is divine; it pairs rich chocolate and cinnamon in a warm drink that is irresistible. There are several brands of Mexican hot chocolate disks that are used to make this rich drink; Ibarra is my favorite because it seems extra rich and contains less preservatives (I have used other brands, however, with excellent results). I also use the hot chocolate disks in desserts such as the following Mexican Hot Chocolate Cake. Although it starts with a cake mix, no one will be the wiser, since the cake is packed with chocolate and cinnamon and ends up with a dense texture similar to a homemade pound cake.

Since this cake isnít too sweet, itís ideal for breakfast and brunch with your favorite warm beverage. Itís also perfect for dessert, and ice cream is a nice accompaniment. The distinct flavors of Mexican hot chocolate will win your guests over, and itís doubtful that there will be any leftovers.
