    Charmie777's Note:

    The addition of cocoa and cinnamon makes this a Mexican classic! You can make this into one 10-inch bundt, two 9x5 loaf cakes, or four 8x4 loaf cakes. NOTE: Don't overbake or this will be dry. Posted for 'Zaar World Tour II.

      Great pound cake with a hint of cinnamon. The consistency is something between a brownie and a cake. I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a loaf pan. Mine took 68 minutes at 350. I also made it lower-fat by cutting the butter in half and adding back the same amount of applesauce. The cake is so dense and rich that no one would guess it was lower in fat.

      This is a KEEPER!!! Cut the recipe in half, and used Smart Balance w/ EggBeaters to lower the fat and cholesterol. Also only used about 1 cup of sugars. Batter seemed thin, but it baked up nice and light. Perfect base for seasonal berries topped w/ lemon cream. YUMMY!! Thanks for sharing.

      This is an incredible cake with complex flavors. I made two 9x5 loaves, and they took 48 minutes to bake at 350 degrees. When you first take a bite, the cinnamon comes through, warm and homey. Then, the rich chocolate and coffee flavors emerge. I served this with a scoop of butter pecan ice cream as part of my Cinco de Mayo menu. It's a snap to make with a mixer, and will become a welcome part of my dessert indulgences! Thank you!
