My wife & I are doing a collaboration post today! She is the brilliant & lovely, A Journey to a Dream blog. Check it out if you would like to see her post on this recipe.
So, we decided to bake a delicious chocolate cake based on the recipe we used for our wedding cake earlier this year (she & her wee cousin William baked that one). The difference this time is, that we would be adding a Scotch Bonnet Chilli!
I always wanted to make Chilli chocolate and I thought since we have a fantastic cake recipe, why not merge the two. I have a lot of SB’s just ready to pick as late maturers so lately we have been looking for ways to use them. Apart from freezing & drying it is a great opportunity to experiment a bit in the kitchen by making some red hot homemade dishes.
These particular Scotch Bonnets are scorching so I would recommend using small amounts of them or use them in larger dishes like spicy hot pots, soups and meals like jambalaya & bolognese.
Right down to business!
