      This cake is supermoist and unique. This same recipe I initially found in one of my cookbooks under "Southwest Chocolate Cake". The only difference was that the cookbook called for the addition of a 1/2 t. salt in the cake batter.
      I too (per other reviewers) have used the sour milk method vs. using buttermilk with success. I felt this cake called for a lot of sugar, so I did reduce the original 2 c.called for by a half cup. It was still very sweet. The topping my cookbook calls for is also identical, with the exception that it calls for 7 oz. canned coconut. Try it, I think you'll like it!

      Awesome cake! The cinnamon flavor is really good. I made this for a family gathering and everyone raved about it. Made for ZWT3 2007.

      The cake was great!!! The chef kids preparing the dessert found the recipe easy to read and follow. Our guest were in awe of the flavor and the presentation. Thanks for such a great recipe.
