You might laugh but I made the most delicious cake last night using this recipe. Yesterday being Valentines Day I tweaked your recipe just a little...I used Chocolate cake mix Strawberry jello and Jello puddings NEW Strawberry cream pudding...If you like Strawcolate like my husband does you will love this, He had three pieces and he is not a sweet eater!

i have been using this and another recipe similar to this for about 5 years (had it at applebees. they stopped making it so i went on a quest for a copycat version. i use food coloring instead of jello, banana pudding and pineapple cheesecake to give it a tropical flavor and my own twist. it is delish:-)
