Chili powder in Chocolate Cake?

Elle | Oct 22, 2003 01:57 PM

This sounds very strange, but I read on a cooking website that various types of chili enhance the flavor of chocolate. There were a couple of recipes for ancho chili chocolate cake and jalapeno brownies. Needless to say, the results were disgusting and I had to quickly whip up some beignets to serve my dinner guests and hang my head in shame after boasting that I had discovered a chocolate cake that would knock their socks off. Has anyone else heard of chili in chocolate cake and does it actually taste good in the right combination?
