Those four words describe this little cake to a T! It was liking eating a not-so-sweet fudge.And while the picture has whipped cream it definitely didn’t need it. But the cake is not photogenic on its own. And it wasn’t very cinnamony even though I added more than 1/2 of what was called for.

    I made 1/2 of the recipe which fit well into a 5″ springform pan. A 1/6th wedge is more than enough to satisfy both your chocolate craving and your sweet tooth.

    Recipe is on page 257 of Malgieri’s the Modern Baker. I also found it on Bon Appetit Hon. We are doing cakes through the end of the year. And now it’s December. Fortunately there are 5 Mondays in December. I might just get four more made!!!
