    I recently made this cake for my boyfriend's birthday and it was a hit! Wonderful rich chocolate taste. YUMMY!

    This cake is a quick, yummy dessert that's a little more dressed up than a plain box mix. For an even richer, deep flavor, replace the 1/2 cup of water with the same amount of cold, black coffee (the darker the better!) You won't taste the coffee when it's baked, it just adds a richer flavor to the cake. So yummy!
