This is a simple very easy to use recipe. I used a piece of sewing thread to cut my cake. Just get enough thread to go around the cake, and long enough to grab at the ends, make sure it's in the middle of the cake then cross the end strings and pull, then you have an even cut. This dessert was so tasty it was gone in 1 day.:) EXCELLENT!!!!!!

Baking is my specialty and I've made ALOT of from-scratch cakes....I followed this recipe exactly and didn't think it was that great. The cake and filling were both bland, bland, bland. The texture of the cake was great but the taste was not nearly as good as other cake recipes I have made.

I used a piece of parchment paper for the bottom of the pan and the cake came out perfectly. The cake sliced in half beautifully as I used a piece of dental floss that another reviewer suggested. This is a wonderful recipe. The rich chocolate flavour of the cake and filling are not too sweet which is always my biggest challenge when looking for recipes. We did not find this bland in the least and have given this recipe a permanent place in our collection.

It tasted VERY good. I followed the directions exactly. My only complaint is that the cake cracked on top during baking. It is chocolatey (like milk chocolate), but does not have a STRONG chocolate taste (like a semi-sweet).

Awesome cake. Didn't look the greatest as my attempt at slicing wasn't the best but a chocolate lover's dream that's for sure. Went fast.

Served this dessert to a party of six and both couples contacted me later for the recipe. We realy enjoyed it. NOTE: I had a sticking issue with the cake, so I improvised and called it a Boston Creme Pie Crumble cake. The top layer was made of moist crumbled pieces, and it worked great. The glaze soaked into the pieces, but it did not deteriorate the taste in the slightest.

Outstanding cake. I only had an 8-inch cake pan so I had to lower the temp and cook it 10 min longer. Best chocolate cake ever!
