INGREDIENTS (Makes 2 layers)

 

CAKE:

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ¼ cups  granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 ½ tablespoon finely minced seeded chillis

 

FROSTING:

 

  • 3 ¼ cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter or margarine
  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate,
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease two 9-inch round baking pans or one 9” x 13” baking pan. Microwave chocolate chips in an uncovered medium-size microwave-safe bowl on high power for 1 minute; stir. (Chips may retain some of their original shape.) If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring in between, just until melted.

 

  1. In a large bowl, combine granulated sugar, butter and vanilla; beat with electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat for 1 minute. Beat in melted chocolate chips. In a medium-size bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; beat into chocolate mixture alternately with the milk. Stir in chillis. Pour into prepared pan(s).

 

  1. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan(s) for 20 minutes, then invert onto wire rack(s) to cool completely.

 

  1. Meanwhile, prepare frosting: In a small bowl, beat confectioners’ sugar, milk, butter, melted chocolate, vanilla and salt until smooth and creamy. Frost cake.
