Wow. 1/4 c cinnamon is a lot... No wonder you have to cut back.... I will be trying this one soon, though! I love chocolate with a *hint* of cinnamon! Thanks!

Mexican Hot Chocolate Buttercream:
500 milliliters egg whites
800 grams granulated sugar
900 grams unsalted butter, room temperature
250 grams white chocolate, melted and cooled
250 grams dark chocolate, melted and cooled
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons sweet ancho chile pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cinnamon Vanilla Cake:
2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Mexican Hot Chocolate Buttercream:
Combine the egg whites and sugar in a stand mixer bowl and whisk to combine. Place bowl over simmering water while whisking regularly until the mixture reaches 140 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer and the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove bowl from heat and whip the mixture at medium to high speed until the meringue has cooled almost completely.
Slowly add the room temperature butter piece by piece until the buttercream takes on a cottage cheese consistency. Add the melted cooled chocolates, spices, and vanilla until incorporated and smooth.

Cinnamon Vanilla Cake:
Cream the butter in a stand mixer until smooth and light. Add sugar and continue to mix until fully incorporated and fluffy.

Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine milk and vanilla. Add portions of the flour mixture and milk mixture to the electric mixer, alternating, starting and ending with flour. Pour evenly into 2 buttered and floured 9-inch cake pans.

Bake for 40 minutes or until golden - cake should pull away from the side and spring back to the touch.

Frost cake and decorate as desired.


This recipe was provided by professional chefs and has been scaled down from a bulk recipe provided by a restaurant. The Food Network Kitchens chefs have not tested this recipe, in the proportions indicated, and therefore, we cannot make any representation as to the results.

I don't mean to ask a silly question, but would vanilla buttercream icing be good with the Cinnamon Vanilla cake? I'm learining to work with buttercream icing, and I really want to try a different flavor/type of cake. I've been using white boxed cakes and that gets pretty boring.

I just received a notification about a posting on this thread, but when I opened it, it said there were no postings to this thread. I know the earlier pages work.

I hope this helps enliven the thread again, and that the recipes which are missing will be reposted by the original post owners.

Thanks all -

Please note that all continuing posts to this thread are lost in the virtual ether due to the CC Database Crash of March 14, 2008. If you can somehow get into this thread, you can post here but it is really hard for anyone to actually locate your post.

So here's my special request (if you can read this!) - don't post to this thread anymore! I've started a Part II continuation thread here: http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopicp-5859746.html

Thanks, and now please head over to that new thread and fork over your recipes thumbs_up.gif

I'm having a problem...I saw this post and found someone who posted "One Delicious Chocolate Cake by Kat Sullivan" and when I printed out the recipe it didn't print out with all of the measurements. Now I can't find it and I have everything out to make this cake. Anyone know where I can find it?

I am so glad I found this thread! I currently do doctored mixes but I hate being so dependent on cake mixes. I would love to be able to tell customers (well if I ever get any icon_lol.gif ) that I bake from scratch.

Please keep sharing. thumbs_up.gif
