      Very yum! Nice and moist. We made it last night and had it today for lunch. I used my favorite chocolate frosting from Super Moist Chocolate Cake. I wasn't so sure about this mix when I added the huge amount of water. It was after adding the last couple scoops of dry mix to the mixer that it came together just right. So you have to trust the process. This was almost too much for my Kitchen Aid mixer in quantity. I think I would do half the sugar as white sugar, just to sweeten it up a little. Also, this makes A LOT! I made it in my biggest springform pan, which was quite deep. The cake rose nicely, but it was way too much for one layer. All in all, the cake is very tasty. It would also make really good cupcakes. Made and Reviewed for Bargain Basement Tag game - Thanks! :)
