Size Wise

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

Note

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.

Ratings & Reviews

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 :-)

This was a lot more effort than I like to put forth making a cake but I had to give it a test run before I attempted it for guests. I followed the directions exactly (that's typically a big challenge for me:) and although I had reservations about the density of the mousse layer it turned out perfectly. I used a 12 cup Bundt pan and still had overflow though, I'm not sure why but I think I will reduce the cake batter next time according to the suggestion. And talk about a trick! Who knew the layers would flip in the baking process? Very tasty but I was thinking along with some other folks' comments that some powdered espresso in the mousse would be quite yummy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok, here’s the deal. Ok, here’s the deal. With the pan upside down, opening to the top, so you can fill it, pour in the cake mix, top that with mousse mix. While baking the mousse will sink to the “bottom”, the cake will rise to the “top”. When you take it out of the oven, with the opening UP the mousse at that point will be one the “bottom” of the pan the cake on the “top”, but when you flip it to remove the cake, the mousse, that “sank to the bottom” of the pan is now on top, and the cake mix that “rose to the top”. See, with the pan so you can fill and bake it, is upside down from what the finished cake will be. Get it?

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 I thought for sure I had messed it up! I thought for sure I had messed it up! I only had unsweetened chocolate but I'd already mixed up the batter, then I had to take cookies off a sheet and when I turned back the mousse had sunk into the cake...turns out it was still amazing. (I did not have any overflow problems, I wonder if letting it sit a few minutes helped it settle into the pan?) The mousse was strong but still okay, and great with Cool Whip. Delicious cake and I will make it again...and again...and again! A little more effort than just a plain cake, but not complicated and definitely worth it.

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 This cake is one of my favorites! This cake is one of my favorites! So far I have made it 3 times and plan to make it again next week. To be on the safe side (even thoughI have a large Bundt pan) I make 6 cupcakes out of part of the batter. I followed the directions exactly although I didn't quite understand how the "magic" would happen, but it worked! It does take a while to make, but definitely worth it. The more times you make it, the faster it will be and you will get more comfortable adding your own flavoring variations.

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.
