I have made this two years in a row and it always comes out perfect . It is my son's favorite cake and besides making it at Christmas, I also make it for him for his birthday in August.
This was a wonderful cake; great flavor, moist and beautiful. I had no trouble getting the cake out of the pan
I am a very experienced baker. My pan was very well greased and cooled for exactly 15 minutes. The cake stuck to the pan and what came out definitely was crumbly. The flavor was very good, but the end result was very disappointing. Very expensive when both time and ingredients are lost 5 days from Christmas.
My cake also stuck to the pan, and I cooled it as directed. However, many cake mixes are now being made in 16.5 oz. boxes, and this is what I used. I wonder if that could have been the reason.
I'm generally not a semi-homemade recipe cook, but I saw this and had to try. The flavor is excellent, great texture, and it's super easy to make. Everyone asked for the recipe immediately! Thanks for the great recipe!
I love chocolate and peppermint and this cake was a winner. The cake was very moist with just enough peppermint flavor. It made a nice presentation for our Christmas Eve dinner.
From the Test Kitchens...Generally if there is a problem and the cake breaks apart it usually means that the cake may been been cooled alittle too long. The cake tends to adhere to the sides of the pan if the cake is cooled evenly slightly too much.
Absolutely delicious! Simple and easy to make. The hardest part (and longest) were the cooling times. Beautiful chocolate & mint taste without being overwhelming. Loved it.
I don't know yet how it will taste but I baked it for 45 minutes, cooled it for 15 minutes on a wire rack, and when I tried to turn it out three large chunks stuck to the greased and cocoa-ed bundt pan. I am very disappointed because this is for my Christmas Eve party. It is too costly to try it again now. Oh well - I hope the taste makes up for it's questionable looks at my party.
this was a 10. super easy to make and very moist and flavorful. Combines my two favorite flavors, chocolate and peppermint.

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
