Chocolate Earthquake Cake II
March 28, 2011

I made this tonight because I had a cake mix, a bar of cream cheese and some coconut. It went together easily and I had high hopes. Unfortunately, the recipe directions were inadequate and I acted impulsively, not taking the time to read all of the reviews. Judging from the recipe photo, I assumed one would need to turn this cake out of the pan. Well, the cake bears no resemblance to the photo. The directions do not specify how long to cool the cake, if/when to de-pan it, etc. I made an educated guess (I've been baking for 30+ years) and it was a mistake. I now have a pile of rubble and a mess on my counter. I did taste it and it's rich and delicious but I'm so relieved that I didn't make this for anything important. I'm sure it would be great if we just had explicit instructions. I'll give it another shot if the recipe is amended.
