This is a Duncan Hines recipe. I am not a chocolate lover, but this was really good cake. I would suggest using slightly less sugar though.
Here is a tip I found on that site. It helps.
After baking let stand in pan for 5 minutes. Place wax paper over and turn upside down onto cookie pan. Let sit another 5 minutes, and then remove pan. You can then let cool and put back into the original pan.
Made this for a "toy" party last night and it was super yummy!! I took KT's suggestion and did it 1/2 cake then cream chesse mix and cake.
This a wonderfully mosit and rich cake. I made it for a birthday party at work and everyone loved it. It is simple to make and is a different twist then the standard German Chocolate cake.
