Ghost Chile Honey Cake

  • Details
  • Related Items

The combination of chile and chocolate is irresistible. This Ghost Chile Honey Cake is a mouth watering example of the time-tested flavor combination. By infusing the ghost chile into honey, we were able to mellow the heat and reveal its subtle fruity flavor. The fudgy and fiery creaminess of the frosting, the moist chocolate cake, and the tang of the marmalade combine together to make one luscious cake. While it’s perfect for a Halloween party, we’ve made this cake for birthdays, holiday gatherings, and just when we wanted a thick slice of a really good chocolate cake.

  1. this is such a wonderful recipe that i bought a jar of ghost chili pods just to make this cake … and i live alone! i absolutely intend to “eat the whole thing” but i wonder if it’s freeze-able.

      It is a delicious cake, isn’t it? I’m sure that you could freeze it. I’d wrap it well in parchment paper (because of the frosting), then double-wrap it with plastic wrap, trying to get as much air out as possible so that no ice crystals form. I don’t think you’ll notice any difference in the texture of the cake, but you might with the frosting once it’s thawed out. Try it and let us know how it works!

      I made this a few weeks ago and froze most of it. I froze it before wrapping to solidify the ganache then wrapped tightly with Saran wrap. They’ve held up great! Absolutely delicious!!
