I just baked this cake for my step - daughter's birthday. She, like the rest of the family, is a chocolate lover and I know she will love it because I scraped the cake from the bottom & sides of tube pan & it's moist, chocolatey & delicious.I followed another reviewer's advice and used a full cup of cocoa powder. I used the tube pan and it was a challenge getting it out of the pan because it is so moist. Out of sheer desperation, I folded parchment paper, four pieces thick, cut a hole in the middle, put it over tube ( had manged to get the rim part off without too much damage)said a prayer and gently flipped it over. It worked. I set it on cake saver plate and frosted with chocolate ganache, then trimmed off the messy paper around the edges. Had already thrown out the leftover coffee from breakfast & didn't want to make a pot so I made a cup of "International Delight" vanilla latte instant. I also added an extra teaspoon of vanilla and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Voila! Will definitely make this one again.
