Five star! I made this for my son's birthday when he was a boy. It continues to be his all time favorite and he still requests it for special occasions (he's 40).

I made this cake for the first time and it turned out exactly as it said it would. I bake it for 45 min. only I think that is the key to success. I want to know why the walnuts are so essential to the recipe..I would like to try it without the nuts. What will happen? Any information on that?

I have baked this cake several times. It is always has a Tunnel of Fudge. It is a very moist cake. It is so delicious that it doesn't last very long at my house.

I tried this cake several times and it never comes out right. I have never gotten that true fudge center. The secret was the dry double fudge frosting mix that was discontinued. A rather expensive cake to bake with all those nuts for it not to come out right.

I made this cake according to the recipe & it not only didn't have the tunnel, it was extremely dry & not fit to eat. I'm having trouble believing that there isn't any liquid of any kind listed in the recipe. The batter was very difficult to hand-stir the flour, cocoa powder & walnuts. I used to buy the tunnel of fudge cake mix when Pillsbury offered it years ago, but can't find it any longer. If anyone has a suggestion about how to make this cake so it's edible, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. TIA

In reference to the last post, "AWILSON". I received this recipe, hand written by my Mom, way back in 1973 when I first married. I made it several years later and made a notation to self, "It's good, but not moist enough." I decided to look it up online because she had noted that it was the PILLSBURY WINNER. I found it and to my SURPRISE, THE RECIPE IS DIFFERENT. My recipe does not have the powdered sugar, but rather has 1 box of double dutch fudge butter cream frosting mix. Just read rest of reviews, decided to give updated recipe a shot & take advice on the cooking time.

My mom discovered this recipe when it was the Bake-Off winner and used to make it for birthdays. I have been making it twice a year for my children's birthdays using this recipe for many years. It works out perfectly! I bake it for 45 minutes and like some of the other reviewers I don't wait for the sides to pull away from the pan. It will be over baked if I do.
I don't understand what the reviewer that said some of the ingredients are missing means. This is the exact recipe I use...nothing is missing.

The recipe as listed on your website is missing ingredients.
The filling is missing plus the other ingredients are incorrect. I have the original recipe in your Pillsbury #219 magazine Best from 50 Years of Bake-Off Contests from May 1999.
