    Jenny Frenny's Note:

    This is a favorite cake of my Dad's. I got this recipe from my Aunt Karen. The cinnamon in it really makes it good.

      Mine took double the time to bake (obviously my pan was too small, so my error). But this was absolutely fabulous - 10 stars!!! Where have I been living to not of made or eaten this? The cinnamon enhances the chocolate flavour while the pecans add another level to the overall dish. I will be making this again. I think this would be great for dessert with company. Thanks for posting Jenny!
