This is a moist delectable chocolate cake. Absolutely the best I have ever eaten. I omitted the unsweetened chocolate squares and made the tsp of cinnamon a heaping teaspoon. It was fabulous.

This is an easy cake to make and turns out great - very flavorful and moist. A super birthday cake for a crowd - great with vanilla ice cream.
