Want to bake a cake, but tired of your same old recipes? Try out this Easy Chocolate Cinnamon Cake. Yes, you read that right, this cake has cinnamon in it, as well as a little bit of cayenne pepper too and it tastes so good. You may have heard of Mexican-style hot chocolate, and how they add some cinnamon and cayenne to spice it up, well, this is a similar idea, except with cake. The bitter flavor of chocolate, with the sweetness of the sugar, makes the earthy spices such a great match for exciting your taste buds. The spice in this cake is minimal, so it will not be overpowering at all, just a hint of heat. Another great thing about this cake recipe is that it has no eggs and no dairy in it, so if you're looking for vegan cake recipes, this is one recipe to try out. The next time you bake a cake, give this one a try.
