This is not the original Baker's German sweet chocolate pound cake recipe. I have the original recipe from the wrapper of a Baker's German sweet chocolate bar that was probably printed back in the 1960s. This has too many extraneous ingredients. Example the original recipe does not call for cinnamon and several other items
