I didn't add the cinnamon, because chocolate and cinnamon aren't two tastes I want combined and I was afraid if I tried the cinnamon I'd regret it and have 2 cakes nobody wanted to eat. I made a double batch (2 cakes for 2 different occasions). As I was making the cake, I realized I was basically making a Texas cake. I had to bake the cakes around 30-35 minutes before they passed the tooth pick test. The icing is the reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5. It was good, but I think 4 cups of powdered sugar is too much as the icing was thick and had to be "pushed" around on the cake rather than "poured" over the cake, so it doesn't have a smooth finish as I hoped it would. My husband and I each tried a bite as it was still just a little warm so I could get my review in and we both agree it tastes like a thick Texas cake. That's not a bad thing, we really like Texas cake. Granted, I left out the cinnamon and I'm sure that significantly changes the taste of the cake, but other than that, it's a good, moist, lightly chocolate, relatively easy cake that will go great with a glass of milk or a dip of vanilla ice cream.
