Chocolate Blackout Cake is just a chocolate cake with pudding as the frosting, and then more cake crumbles on top. I had never seen or heard of a Chocolate Blackout Cake before I saw this one in the cookbook. It's a lot o' chocolate, and it's good! The recipe called for Coffee, but I just substituted that for water and it turned out normal. The chocolate pudding was a homemade recipe from the cookbook. I loved it. I would make that one again for sure. As for the rest of the cake, I'm not sure that I would make it again. It was just a bit more work than I like. It really did take about 6 hours from start to finish. It's also not a photogenic cake! I could not get a good shot of it. Here is the link to the recipe! http://cookinwithsnort.weebly.com/2/post/2012/04/my-host-week-chocolate-blackout-cake.html
I've always wanted to use that thing! I don't think that it's technically meant for halving a cake, but it worked!
