Quick Mexican Chocolate Cake

Quick Mexican Chocolate Cake

I love chocolate and cinnamon and came up with this cake one day. It has now become my family's biggest request. We always have Abuelita® tablets around and I wondered if they would melt well as a glaze, and they do!

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Dust a 12-inch oven-safe skillet with a pinch of cake mix and set aside.
  2. Step 2

    Mix cake mix, water, eggs, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, pudding mix, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Pour into the skillet.
  3. Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven until a tester comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes; invert onto a plate.
  4. Step 4

    Place chocolate drink tablets and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is melted and the glaze has the consistency of syrup, about 5 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Pour the glaze over the cake, spreading with a spatula. Let cool for 10 minutes and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
