Made exactly as directed, with two exceptions: I made only 1/3 of the recipe (8 servings) in a 9x5 bread loaf pan, and I used semi-sweet chocolate. Baked about 35 minutes. Waited about 30 minutes before flipping over. It flipped clean, except for some coconut that I scraped out and put on top of the cake. No sticking, no big mess. As for taste, it's slightly less chocolatey than a german chocolate cake from the grocery store or a package mix - next time I will double the chocolate. The topping was nutty and coconutty, but a little bit watery tasting, hence the 4 stars. The texture was good, and it was plenty sweet, so over all a quick, easy, yummy frumpy homemade cake. NOTE: This looked just fine for a casual easy dessert. Ignore the complaints about appearance. (It is an upside down cake, after all.)
