I made this also in a loaf pan (1/2 recipe) and it turned out wonderfully. I used chopped pecans (my fave), Pamela's gluten-free flour, and grapeseed oil as this was low temp baking I really liked the cocoa-cinnamon flavor. Thanks for posting ~ this is a good cake! Made for ZWT6 ~ NA*ME Region and Queens of Quisine.
