I made this cake this past weekend TWICE, everyone loved it. I made it for my family and because they loved it so much, I took it to potluck at church!! You can not go wrong with this cake!! A-MAZING!!!
This is the go-to cake for special occasions in out house. The whole family loves it. Its super rich and gets better after the first day.
This cake is a chocolate lover's heaven! Yes it is rich and moist, but not too rich. This cake will not disappoint! It is simply as it is called, the best-ever chocolate fudge layer cake!
For a little more of a kick, instead of the water, i used espresso. Yum!!!
I would rather not start out with a mix if possible. I would rather avoid preservatives if possible.
absolutely delicious!!!
I've been making this cake ever since it came out in the Kraft magazine years ago. Absolutly the BEST!! Both of my daughters must have this as their Birthday Cake. Read several reviews and some are saying too moist & crummbly. I make sure NOT to use a cake mix that already has pudding, since you will be putting pudding in it. I've even used store brands & they work just fine. Also we like cake more dense and heavy (the hole reason of this cake) so as soon as it comes out of oven, I press down on it (using a piece of parchment paper)several times as its cooling in pans. Never had a problem with getting cakes out of pans. As for the icing, PERFECT!! Could not imagine anything better. Just enough.Refrigeration over night a must. We serve fresh strawberries along with it. "ABSOLUTE PERFECTION"
This is my go to chocolate cake recipe. My family loves it and wherever I take it everyone raves about how delicious it is!
I can read a recipe and tell how good it will be. This was worth trying. I baked it as a 9x13" sheet cake. I used a chocolate fudge icing and it was a piece of bliss. I gave a couple pieces to friends for eval. The loved it and thought it was restaurant or store bought instead of homemade. This will be my ONLY chocolate cake recipe. I also used buttermilk instead of water which I think helped make a big difference.
A WINNER! I made this for Thanksgiving, but made a few adjustments. Originally I was planning to make the Tuxedo cake, but was looking for a really rich choc cake recipe and found this one. Instead of adding water to the mix I added buttermilk (which I substitute in almost all my cake and muffin recipes); I used 3 round cake pans instead of two. I used cream cheese frosting between the layers and frosted the outside with dark choc frosting, then thinned out my cream cheese frosting and drizzled more on top and let it drip down the sides. It was a hit! It is a very dense, fudgy cake and now part of my "Go-To Recipes". Might try it in a bundt pan next time.
