    I made this cake, only in no in mini cupcakes, for the kids at the daycare O volunteer at. A couple of the kiddos have good allergies so finding treats to make for them is challenging. These turned out awesome. And what's more important, they loved them. Flavorful and moist!

    This is a very good recipe - easy to put together and a fantastic cake to make when resources are "running low" (i.e., no eggs in the refrigerator). I had made a similar cake previously, but I like the additions of coffee and cinnamon and will be using this recipe now instead.
