This is wonderful! I used a Butter Yellow cake mix and while I really wanted to use the optional coconut, I was out. I added 6 oz of semi sweet chocolate chips instead. The 1 tbsp of cocoa really gave the cake a lovely medium caramel color and the hint of cinnamon was just right. IF there is any left tomorrow (Big IF as DH is already on 2nd piece and he took a huge piece to his brother), I plan on taking a piece to work. All I did to finish the cake was to dust with powdered sugar as suggested. It is moist enough on it's own to not need a glaze or frosting. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
Made this again for long-distance friends stopping by. Pretty fool-proof - and VERY quick and easy !
Saw the review earlier, and made the cake according to directions -- used KA BLACK cocoa -- gave a lovely chocolaty color. Definitely NOT sweet, but a more airy, light texture than the usual pound cake. Got to use my new scraper-beater, which worked so well ! This was so easy to put together and baked perfectly in 54 minutes ! Will be a repeater for sure. Thanks for posting !!
