My mother makes this cake for my husband when we go to visit her. He will eat two or three pieces of this over the course of the evening! It is very rich and moist. Simple to make.

Wonderful stuff! This is the birthday cake I made for myself this year, and it was fantastic. I used a Pilsbury Devil's Food mix, and lite Cool Whip, and it couldn't have been easier. My aunt and mom agreed on the 5 star rating. This one's a keeper. Thanks bunches Denise!
