This is one of my favorite cakes. The first time I made it, I also had a problem with the topping getting stuck in the pan. What I do now, is to line the bottom of the pan with foil, allowing some overhang at the two ends, and grease the foil well. Then just gently peel the foil off after turning the cake upside down.
I also had this recipe from Quick Cooking magazine. My daughter loved it so much I named it "Themis Chocolate Cake"! The difference is that mine has one, not 3/4 cup of brown sugar--and "packed"...
Very good, but VERY rich!!
