Really nice Cake very easy to make. Preparation was definately less than the 30 minutes stated. You can easily get away without the vanilla if you don't have it in the cupboard. Equally the nuts are optional too. - 23 Sep 2014
I love this cake! We have made it with cinnamon, with 1/2 the cinnamon and without cinnamon. Hubby likes no cinnamon, I like it with 1/2 the cinnamon. This is a great rich, moist, chocolate cake. - 19 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
