I've made this cake for a few years and I love it! I won second place with it in the chocolate cake category (against a lot of other entries) at the fair a couple of years ago. Today I tried dissolving instant coffee in the boiling water for the the batter and warmed milk for the frosting. I will never do it another way! Takes it to a whole other level! For the people with the problem of the cake running over--are you sure you are using a 9" pan and not an 8"? But more than likely, your oven is too hot and your cake is rising too fast. Try splitting the cake up between 3-9" pans and bake for about 18 minutes, I think. I use a TON of Baker's Joy and usually parchment because this cake is so moist, it tends to stick.
