A very simple dense, chocolate snack cake topped with homemade whipped cream, spiced with cinnamon and chili powder. This cake, like traditional Mexican hot chocolate is dense and rich. It’s easy to whisk together, using only bowl and spoons (no mixers required) that incorporates both cocoa powder and melted chocolate. Dry ingredients are whisked together and set aside while you chop high-quality dark chocolate and butter. The sugars are combined in a saucepan with strong coffee and simmered until the mixture is boiling and the sugars are dissolved. The hot coffee syrup is then poured over the chopped chocolate ganache-style, and the mixture sets to give the chocolate time to melt. Eggs and vanilla are whisked in, followed by the dry ingredients, and the cake bakes in an 8x8 square pan.
