      Very flavourful and moist cake, not too rich and that's how I like it. I reduced the cinnamon to just a pinch and the vanilla to one teaspoon. It came out perfectly, thank you for the recipe. My family loved it.

      Lovely moist cake. I made one loaf and 6 large muffins. Bake time for the muffins was 30 minutes. I did not use the chips or nuts. :)

      Wow! This cake is delicous!! It is soooo thick and fudgy. I would skip the chocolate chips on top though. The cake is so good by itself it just doesn't need it and is better without. Will def be making this again and again and again:)
