Hi saunderd - We have corrected the amount of cinnamon required for this recipe. Thank you for calling this issue to our attention. -The editors of RecipeLion

This recipe has been around for decades and it is wonderful and easy to make. However, we made a mix of the cinnamon, sugar, about 2T cocoa, and chopped walnuts (1/2 C or more). You put some of the cake batter in the pan and add some of the mix. Repeat one or two times.

Is the cinnamon amount correct? 1/3 cup of cinnamon is 5 Tablespoons plus a teaspoon. That's one heck of a lot of cinnamon.

I know you added cinnamon and sugar and some extra moisture, but this is still just a cake. I would suggest layering in a combination of chopped pecans, butter and the cinnamon sugar between two layers of batter. Then it is more like coffee cake.
