Even though I carefully followed the recipe to the letter, my cakes turned out dense, dry, and not very flavorful. The chocolate layer doesn't sink to the bottom as claimed, it remains as a thin layer at the top and drips down along sides of the crust. Not sure what I did wrong?

This recipe, with minor differences, has been a family favorite for generations. We couldn't keep it in the house once it was made. It is still one of my favorite recipes to make and consume.

I followed the recipe exactly and after the baking time was done, the inside was liquidy. I also found that the flour-based layer will seep out if not sealed by the chocolate. I've had funny cake before and was so disappointed that this recipe didn't work even after 4 failed attempts.
