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!

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

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

  • 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.

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

I made this cake for an elderly aunt who loves chocolate. She said she liked the addition of cinnamon in the cake. She didn't care for the texture of the glaze. The Abuelita tablets with the addition of oil melted creating a nice shiny ganache-like glaze but unfortunately it was very grainy. Read More
