I followed this recipe exactly and ended up with a wonderful, moist, delicious cake. I buttered the textured pan well, and sprinkled it with cocoa powder - the cake fell right out. I mis-chose the frosting - using a cocoa buttercream. I think this cake would go best with a mildly sweet frosting - something sour cream-based or even a whipped cream topping. It is really so nummy on its own. I wonder if some of the negative reviews were from those using Dutch-processed cocoa. The baking soda will not leaven properly with this kind of alkylized cocoa See Joy of Baking for details.
