I've been wanting to make this for a while- the picture in the book looks AMAZING. A moist cake with a chocolate ribbon in the middle, topped with shiny chocolate frosting. I would probably eat bugs if they were topped with shiny chocolate frosting. Anyway, this recipe did not disappoint. The cinnamon flavor is warm and breakfast-y, while the chocolate makes it more of a dessert. I halved the recipe and made mine in a 6" round pan.My chocolate layer wasn't pronounced like the picture in the book, and it was more at the bottom than in the middle, but you could still taste it. I actually used a chopped milk chocolate bar with macadamia nuts for the chocolate layer. Even though I don't normally like nuts in desserts, I thought the macadamia nuts added a lot to the cake.
