    Julie in TX's Note:

    I like this recipe because you don't have to sift the ingredients. You just mix it all together and bake it. Leave the cake in the pan you cook it in and frost it while it's still warm. I have used this recipe for so long that I don't remember where I got it. Great for chocolate lovers! I'm editing this to add that this is a very dense, moist cake. It has a very mild cinnamon taste so if you prefer a stronger cinnamon presence, just add more cinnamon. I usually do put more cinnamon in. In fact, I don't really measure it. I just dump some in.
