Straight sided is the way to go especially for round pans where you won't be trimming.

A good size for a 1/4 sheet pan is 8x12 instead of 9x13, you'll get a nice, thicker cake.

I really like Parrish Magicline pans, I get them from Amazon and they are great and not too expensive.

Thanks for the tips. I'll have o do some shopping.

How many layers is that cake? It looks like a 4 layer cake with no obvious frosting between the layers. Is there more of the 'glaze'?

I hauled out my little old recipe box, and I see the Texas sheet cake called for buttermilk, so it's not exactly the same I guess.

This cake looks yummy!! Has anyone ever tried this cake in a bundt pan? I would like to try, but thought I'd ask just in case anyone has tried and has suggestions. Thanks for sharing the recipe and thanks for any ideas about making this into a bundt cake.

Welcome CÚline!

Ah! "Chocolate Lava Cakes" here in the States.

What is the failure you are having? Are you able to link us to the recipe so we can take a look at the procedure?

I have made these several times and have had good luck with them.
