Hot and Spicy Chocolate Cakes
Notes: Doña María Mole Mexican Condiment is available in the Latin American aisle of most supermarkets and also on a variety of online stores. Be sure to buy the concentrated condiment sold in a glass jar, rather than the ready-to-serve version sold in a box.
Like natural peanut butter, jarred mole settles and separates. Mix thoroughly prior to using.
This recipe can be halved. When baking, fill the six empty tins with water to guarantee even baking.
The cakes should be eaten warm, but leftovers can be chilled—the texture will be dense and fudgy.
