“I'm not sure about the origin of the recipe; my best friend asked me to make this for her birthday and dear heavens, was it amazing! Bake time for my convection oven was 40 minutes, but check after the first twenty-five. Nice, crisp crust and moist inside...the chocolate, coffee and cinnamon blend exquisitely.”
