Mexican Chocolate Pound Cake



Mexican Hot Chocolate was a favorite growing up. We always paired it up with Bolillo, Mexico's version of French bread. There is nothing better than a hot cup of hot chocolate to warm you up during those cold winter nights.


This month I was torn between two recipes, this delicious pound cake and a Key Lime Ice Box cake. The other two Cake Slice selections were Lane Cake, and a Tiramisu cake. With ingredients limited this month I decided to bake half a recipe. This recipe called for chocolate syrup, which I omitted only because quite frankly I dislike this sauce, I've never learned to like it. I did double up on the melted chocolate squares and the cinnamon. It was perfect. The batter was absolutely delicious! I even gave my husband a blind fold taste test and had him guess what the flavor of the cake was to be. He guessed correctly! Everyone loved the cake, and agreed it was Mexican Hot Chocolate! 
Hurry over and visit my Cake Slice friends for their baking adventures this month!

Anabel, I don't know how you ever got this cake into the oven! I think I would have eaten half of that gorgeous batter! Thanks for giving us 4 wonderful choices this month! You always make it so hard to choose! : )

Definitely doubling chocolates when I make this Mexican Chocolate Pound Cake, Anabel. Thank you so much for making this group run so smoothly. I truly learn so much from great bakers like you!

Anabel, your cake has the perfect texture, so chocolate syrup must not be needed. Double the chocolate and the cinnamon is a wonderful change, too. I agree, we are indebted to you for making this group work, along with Baking in Pajamas. Two great bakers!
