This was a 2nd attempt at this cake. The 1st time I made this, I totally thought I'm NOT going to try this again. Because it was so heavy and dense in the bundt pan...that when it cooled off, the cake split in half and not all of it came out of the pan and dumped everywhere. I was very disappointed. So nearly a year later, I thought about it again and figured, I'd try again. So, with that in mind...different results, and I now understand what happened. While others have success with making their's in bundt, it was way way to dense and it doesn't rise very much...matter fact very little. I ended up using a 8x10 perfect brownie pan..without the brownie insert, and it worked out very well. The cake was very moist, and still lightly dense, but it cooked through all the way, so I can't complain on that. It sure wasn't the prettiest cake at the ball coming out of the oven. So I just used a biscuit cutter and stacked little mini cakes onto a plate with leftover buttercream frosting and called it a day. I'll make again just as I did the 2nd time. But never put it in a bundt pan. The smaller the baking pan, the better success.
