Mexican Chocolate Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting | gluten-free, egg-free | www.RaiasRecipes.com
This week I’m featuring a gluten free Mexican Chocolate Cake from Raia at Raia’sRecipes.com. Raia is a Gluten Free Mama with Gluten and allergy-friendly recipes galore! I’m particularly smitten with her Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies
This cake was great and a cinch to put together, using arrowroot and sorghum flours. It’s also dairy and egg free as well. It rose well and had great texture and crumb – very moist! 

Although I loved the cake, the real star for me was the frosting! The cinnamon cut some of the sweetness and complemented the cream cheese perfectly. I may or may not – ok, I did – eat it right off a spoon out of the mixer bowl! 

The cake was a nice size but would be lovely doubled up into a layer cake. The chili powder cut a lot of the sweetness – My husband LOVED it because it had just enough chocolatey goodness without all of the sweetness. 

I do hope you’ll give the recipe a try and visit Raia!
