Warning!  This cake is so tasty you might need to make two so there’s enough to go around, especially if you’re planning to share it with others.  When I made this cake the other night, my hubby couldn’t keep out of it (of course, it does have chocolate in it and that makes it even more tempting)!  He was scraping the glaze off the wax paper underneath the cake before it had cooled. When I gave the word that it was ready, he cut a small piece and then went back two more times for yet another “small” piece!

Since this cake starts with a muffin mix, it takes no time at all to put together.  The flavors of cinnamon, chocolate and orange complement each other so well and the smell coming from the oven makes you go ahhhh!  You’ll have a hard time waiting for the cake to cool and the glaze to set, but the wait is worth it. Time to enjoy this moist and yummy cake!

    Great recipe! I made it as a bundt cake and just tossed the pecans and streusel mix into the batter and it turned out awesome. I’m forcing myself not to eat a third slice right now.
