Size Wise

Since this layered chocolate cake makes 24 servings, it's the perfect dessert to serve at your next party.


The cream cheese mixture sinks to the bottom of the cake batter in pan as the cake bakes, forming the creamy layer at the top of the unmolded cake. To unmold cooled cake, use long thin spatula to loosen cake from sides of pan. Place plate over cake pan; invert cake onto plate. Gently remove pan. Spoon any chocolate syrup remaining in pan over cake.

Important Note

To prevent overflow, check cake pan to confirm it is the required 12-cup size. Just measure 3 qt. (12 cups) water and pour into empty pan to verify the volume before using as directed. If you only have a 10-cup fluted tube pan, reserve 2 cups cake batter before pouring remaining batter into prepared tube pan. Continue as directed. Reserved cake batter will make 9 cupcakes. Bake as directed on cake mix package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious cake. Delicious cake. I was worried when I first made it though, right after I spooned the cream cheese mixture on, it sunk to the bottom. But the cake turned out perfect. My youngest son thought that I had bought it at a bakery because it looked so good, hahaha. Only complaint that I got from a few family members, was that they didn't care for the chocolate syrup on it, and neither do I. But I assume that you need it so the cake will come out of the pan. Going to try other things, maybe like a Ganache, to replace the syrup, but I am worried it may burn. Any suggestions out there to replace the chocolate syrup :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this cake for Christmas dinner at a friends house. Made this cake for Christmas dinner at a friends house. I used a 15 cup bundt pan, which was perfect. Right out of the oven it rose right to the top and then in cooling it shrunk down a bit. Everyone loved it and it was not a heavy dessert; perfect after a big meal. After reading other reviews, I added a large spoonful of hot fudge to the chocolate syrup (still making 1/2 cup) and stired it together before pouring into the bottom of the pan. That way the syrup didn't run all the way down to the plate. I used a small wooden skewer around the inside edges of the pan to loosen the cake. It looked just like the picture and was much easier than other reviews made it sound. Will make this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This did take a lot of time but it tasted fantastic. This did take a lot of time but it tasted fantastic. HOWEVER, it did not look anything like the picture. I don't know if I didn't bake it long enough or what but very soon after it was inverted the mousse started to crack. Luckily it was on a large platter because the mousse completely slid off the cake and it was a real mess. I needed it for a family dinner and it still tasted wonderful so I bought an angel food cake and converted it into a trifle. It looked and tasted great and no one knew. I will try it again but bake it longer I guess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from came out just like the picture! This is somewhat labor intensive, although easy to follow and well worth the effort involved! My husband loved it. I made it as specified and it did look just like the picture.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This recipe was ok. This recipe was ok. The pan size is totally wrong. This needs to be made in a 15 cup bundt pan for the entire thing to fit. I have a 12 cup pan, just like the recipe says, and it did not fit! Also the mousse layer wasn't very chocolatey, so I would add something else to that to pump it up a bit. The cake layer was very good. I would also add a bit less chocolate syrup to the bottom of the pan, or make another type of chocolate to replace it. Overall, it was pretty good, but it needs some tweaks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My first attempt at making this cake is now. My first attempt at making this cake is now. I am making it for my sons 16th birthday. I thought it was fairly easy to put together. I was a little concerned about the speckled appearance of the evap milk and melted choc once I put them together. I will try melting the choc in the milk next time as someone suggested. The cream cheese mixture started sinking before I finished scooping it all on. Doubting that part will turn out. After putting the bundt cake pan in the larger shallow pan and filling with water as directed, I had a heck of a time lifting it and getting it into the oven. Water was pretty close to the top of my shallow pan, ending up spilling some water on the floor as well as in the oven. Checked it after one hour and it hasn't over flowed. Will be taking it out in about 5 minutes. I will add more to this rating later today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just made this cake and it turned out perfect! I just made this cake and it turned out perfect! After reading the previous reviews I was worried that might not work out but it came out flawlessly. I would like to say that I followed the recipe exactly and it was amazing. I used the 12-cup size pan, and there was no overflow. I put the cake in the fridge overnight and when taking it out of the pan it came out and there was no mess. I will definitely make it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is absolutely FABULOUS! This cake is absolutely FABULOUS! It was easy to make and turned out to be lighter than we expected, and the smooth chocolate 'cheesecake' and cake layers were unique and satisfying. I made it with a 10-cup size bundt cake pan, and it turned out perfectly. The cupcakes were gobbled up quickly with a touch of chocolate frosting added. It's a fine addition to our family favorites' cookbook!
