      Made for Fall 09 Pac, made exactly per the recipe. The only problem I had was getting the cake out of the pans in one piece. You might want to consider flouring the pans also or using greased parchment paper in the bottoms of the pans. Otherwise this cake is a wonderfully flavored cake that was enjoyed by all. I used Mocha Buttercream Frosting to frost this with using the dark chocolate cocoa with espresso instant coffee. Thank you for a great cake recipe.
