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.

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 :-)

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 4 out of 5 by from This was a lot more effort than I like to put forth making a cake but I had to give it a test run... 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 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! I made this for my husband's birthday as he loves chocolate! I followed the recipe exactly (except for Hershey's syrup) and it turned out gorgeous and delicious. This is a keeper to wow company. Instead of Hershey's syrup I made a ganache which was extra decadent. I heated one cup heavy cream and poured over 1 cup semi sweet chocolate pieces and stirred until smooth. After the cake was chilled I poured the warm (not hot) ganache over the cake and it was divine.

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 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Amazing Just made this recipe for the first time. Came out looking as good as the photo (see pics). Tastes as good as it looks. I used a Duncan Hines Devils Food Cake mix because that's what I prefer, and used a 4oz. bar of Ghirardelli's Bittersweet Chocolate in the mousse. Lots of flavor (and I am finicky when it comes to boxed mixes because they are usually a bit bland). However, this was great. I would strongly suggest that you prepare as much as possible before making the cake batter. I mean, prepare the pan with the chocolate syrup, crack your eggs (3 in one bowl, 4 in another), make the mousse mixture, heat the oven and heat water to go into the surrounding bath, spray the foil with Pam, BEFORE you make the cake mix and assemble the cake. Believe me, it will make your life much easier without having to worry about the cake not rising properly because it sat around while you were doing everything else. By the way, as I was gently spooning the last of the mousse mixture over the top, the layers started to shift.. yes.. even before baking. I was a bit alarmed and wondered if I had messed it up, but no, it came out Great. Will definitely make again and again. May try other flavors in the future, but the chocolate on chocolate was superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just made this for Thanksgiving and it is soooo yummy! Just made this for Thanksgiving and it is soooo yummy!!!! Can't stop eating it. This was a very easy recipe to follow. The only change I made was to add 1 T of chocolate liquer to the mousse. What a decadent looking dessert. I let it cool on a wire rack for about an hour then put in fridge overnight. The next morning I flipped the whole thing over on a cake plate, let it sit for about 5 minutes then lifted the cake pan right off with no problems!! A definite keeper!
