My aunt brought this cake to a family reunion in October and it was fantastic. I couldn’t really taste any heat in her cake, just very spicy. I made the cake for a dessert at a chili cook off. It was really good after the chili and again, I didn’t notice the heat. But then my lips were already burning from the chili. I did taste some heat the next day when I had a piece of the left over cake. It’s an interesting combination and very good.
The recipe is adapted from Better Homes and Gardens. My aunt ripped it out of a magazine in a doctor’s office a few years ago. I’ve always wondered who is ripping recipes out of magazines in public places. I’ll protect the identity of my aunt though. And because I have 12 aunts, it would be tough for you to figure out which one is responsible. [Read more…] about Chipotle Apple Pecan Cake
