Moist, rich and chocolatey; flavored with cinnamon and espresso coffee. I first made this when I was 14 and it was gone in no time! It's still a family favorite!

Yay! This is an awesome cake! One of my favorite cakes. The perfect blend of coffee, chocolate, and cinnamon. I had lost this recipe and thought I would try finding it online. So glad I found it. Can't wait to make it for the family for Christmas! One note, if the frosting seems too runny, don't worry, it's not-just pour it on, it will turn out right when it cools.

I was looking for a chocolate sheet cake recipe that called for espresso powder, and this fit the bill! It was easy to whip up, and was a hit with the family! They are already requesting (no, demanding!) another one, so it must be good! Thanks so much! :-)

This sheet cake is outstanding! I printed this off over a year ago and my only regret is that I didn't make it sooner. I wanted to take this to a potluck so I tried it on my family first. It was a great success. The espresso makes the chocolate flavor even richer and when this cake is cold it has a nice moist, dense texture. I made this during the holidays three times. Wonderful!
