In a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan over medium heat, stir syrup until hot. Add chocolate and remove from heat; stir often until chocolate is melted. Cool slightly.

In a deep bowl, whip egg whites on high speed until frothy; gradually beat in 1/2 cup sugar. Whip whites until they hold soft, distinct peaks.

With the unwashed beaters, in another bowl beat remaining sugar and butter until smoothly mixed. Stir in chocolate mixture, yolks, flour, pecans, baking powder, and cinnamon; beat to blend thoroughly. Stir about 1/4 of the whites into batter, gently fold in remaining whites until well mixed.
