I've made this several times now. This time I wanted to take it to a work pot luck and decided using the bunt pan wouldn't travel well, so instead poured the batter in an 13x9 pan and baked it for the recommended time. I poked some holes in the top of the cake then added the glaze (coffee liquor vs. chocolate liquor) over the top, then let cool completely. It was a hit! Definitely a keeper.
this was perfect. moist and delicious. we substituted the chocolate liqueur for a coffee liqueur....highly recommend it.
The title of the recipe calls it 'decadent' but I don't agree. I followed the recipe to a T and the taste was somewhat bland, but more importantly it seemed dry. The glaze was interesting. Maybe if this is eaten shortly out of the oven, it would taste better. Also agree with another reviewer that poking holes before pouring on the glaze might infuse a richer flavor overall. I used regular semisweet chips and that helped. Served it with fat free whipped topping. Recommend Cooking Light re-test this recipe.
I have to agree with the other reviews....a little bland. My husband and son enjoyed it however.
I love this cake. It is tender and moist and full of the flavor of the liqueur, so use a good one! The description states it has a 'delicate' flavor, so if you are looking for intense chocolate, this is not the cake. I have taken it to parties and it's always been a huge success. I have used chocolate liqueur as well as coffee liqueur and both are great. 5 Star for sure.
