    I recently made this for a family reunion. I used a 9 x 13 pan and it worked fine.<br/>Everyone loved it. The cinnamon/chocolate flavor was very nice but I think the next time I make it I'll add a bit more of the cayenne pepper.<br/>I also think it would be good with whipped cream as my husband and I had a piece with vanilla ice cream over it and it was delicious!

    This was great. I love the chocolate-cinnamon combo. I think in the future I will made a vanilla glaze to go on this but that is just personal preference. I made this for ZWT5.
