German Chocolate Upside Down

Top Review by Yaneya

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.
