      My Grandmother is German, and I can't say I've ever had this cake ... I feel so cheated not to have had the opportunity to try this years and years ago. I've made this twice in the last week. I absolutely love it! Goes great with French Vanilla Ice Cream. No additional chocolate needed :) This will be my go to cake from now on! Will never make a box cake again!

      Absolutely wonderful recipe. Easy to make and ingredients that I always have on hand. The batter for this cake is very thick. The first layer is easy enough to spread, but I would recommend for the second layer to drop spoonfuls evenly over the first layer to make it easier to spread. This was so good that I made it twice in one week. I took one to work and it was gone before lunch. I took the second one to a Stampin' Up workshop and everyone there loved it too. I had at least a dozen people ask me for the recipe. Made for April 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.

      This was delightful and very easy to make. Its texture is more of a coffee cake (and it goes perfectly with a cup of coffee). I made this exactly as posted, except I ended up not using all of the remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture on the top of the cake (I was afraid it would be too sweet). It was perfect for me. I hope you share more recipes from your grandmom's recipe book, because this one was a winner! Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
