This cake was pretty good but something was a little off. I did not actually have chocolate so I used a can of tuna fish. I also followed another reader's advice and stirred in some mustard. I just hate to find what looks like such a great recipe and have it not turn out to be what I expected.

The cake tasted good but it exploded out of the bundt pan and made a huge mess!! I suggest putting in less and making 2 cakes instead.

This was the best cake I have ever made. I followed another cook's advice and added a box of chocolate pudding mix. I also used buttermilk instead of milk for an incredibly rich, moist and sinful cake!

It's simple and easy! I reduce amount of milk by 1/4 cup, and add 1/4 cup of sour cream (light) to enhance flavor. It was moist and yummy!! I will definitely make it again.

This cake was great, but somehow it made way too much batter and overfilled the Bundt pan.

This cake is easy to make and delicious. I made this for a friend's birthday then had to make it for my family. Because it is such a large cake, I cut it in half using two eggs and baked it for 50 minutes in a 8" square pan. Make sure you use a 10" bundt pan for the whole recipe. Most likely bakers that had trouble with batter spilling over used the wrong size pan.

I was really dissapointed with this recipe, after reading all of the rave reviews. It was really dry. Zhe only saving grace was the chocolate glaze II recipe (also found here) that I topped it with. It was so dry - I was embarassed. I don't know if I cooked it too long but I would definitely not cook it 70 minutes again - probably more like 55 and I would try something like sour cream instead of milk or add applesauce.... don't know what would fix it but this just was not a winner.
