Mexican Hot Chocolate Cheeze Cake

In the winter my guilty pleasure is always a very nice cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate, I love the creamy zing of the cayenne and cacao flirting with each other in my cup. Alas Summer is just around the corner and it has been way to hot for hot chocolate! So in the spirit of one of my favourite Winter delights I have created a Summer version in cake form!

My creamy Mexican Hot Chocolate Cheeze Cake is decadent, delicious, and the perfect addition to any Summer feast! Being gluten free, vegan, and free from refined sugars this cashew based dessert is protein packed and will leave you swooning!

Enjoy! Natasha xoxo
