Cake mix is used to make this moist chocolate cake. The addition of spice makes this one a bit different.

I needed something quick to make for a bake sale and I had all the ingredients for this in my pantry. It came out very moist. I only used 1/2 a can of frosting and mixed around 2 Tablespoons of Caramel Cream Liqueur into it and drizzled it on the top. Great tasting cake and it went fast. Made for Photo Tag.
Delicious, easy to make cake starting with a cake mix. I used a little less cinnamon and omitted the cloves, just a personal preference, and Chocolate Fudge Frosting - Dairy Free for the fudge frosting. I think this cake would be good with a chocolate cake mix too. If you do not cook with alcohol, perhaps use 1 Tablespoon or so of instant coffee dissolved in 1 teaspoon or so of hot water for a mocha flavored frosting. Will definitely make this cake again.
