Fluted tube pans should be well greased and floured before adding the batter. After the cake tests done, transfer the pan to a wire rack and allow to cool for only 10 minutes before removing the cake from the pan.
Instead of making individual hot fudge sundaes for guests, make these cute little cakes! Raspberry and chocolate always pair well. I like to stir 1/2 cup raspberries directly into the sauce, but you can also use them as a garnish.—Pamela Shank, Parkersburg, West Virginia
