serves / makes 6 30 prep time 30 mins cooking time
Chocolate and chilli might be one of those love it or hate it scenarios. It dates back to the Aztecs when they used to add chilli to ground cocoa beans to make a kind of hot chocolate drink.
This cake is really quick to make, mix the ingredients together and pop in the oven while you are having dinner – perfect for a simple dessert with some dairy free ice-cream. This recipe is pretty mild on the chilli so if you want a bigger kick then increase the chilli flakes.
