      Whats not to love about cinnamon and chocolate? I used to make cinnamon chocolate cakes years back and DS always ask for them for his birthday when he was young. I followed the directions and got a lovely and yummy cake. I halved the amount and baked in an 8x8 pan and baked @ 375 for 20 mins and it was done on checking. Thanks loof, I have been looking at this recipe for years and I'm so glad that I finally gave it a try :D. Don't be shy, just jump in and love it!

      Was pretty good. I do like cinnamon and chocolate together. It was just a bit too much cinnamon for DH and I, but we still enjoyed this very much. I didn't have a 15x11 pan so I used a 9x13 it worked but the cinnamon burned a little. If I were to make again I would lower the cinnamon and adjust oven temp to 375 degrees and cook a few minutes longer. Thank you for posting. Enjoyed by all. Made for 1-2-3 Hit wonders Nov 2008
