Scottish Chocolate Cake Recipe

This cake was passed down through a childhood friend's family, and became one of our family's favorites. The hint of cinnamon along with the rich chocolate, makes it a unique dessert to take to office parties, church pot luck, or just to delight your own, as I was delighted to receive it as a child.
