This spicy chocolate cake tempts the palate with a spicy little surprise. Tucked among melted morsels and a dash of cinnamon lie bits of diced jalapeño (should you opt to include them). Diced chiles or no, this cake will satisfy a chocolate craving and then some!

Always love to try something new, the taste was fine, and I used a very rounded Tablespoon of Jalapeno's for the cake, but found the cake to be dry.
