This cake is fantastic! Best tasting hot fudge cake I have ever had. So moist and yummy. Quick and so simple to put together. Thanks for posting this recipe.

This was the best hot fudge cake I have had! I have made a few and the cake part is always lacking in my opinion...leave it to the box cake to put this one over the top. I only had the devil's food cake with pudding in the mix, so I went for it anyway and it turned out great. I did let mine sit for a good 45 min. after it cooked and I think some of the fudge sauce soaked up into the cake, so I was short some "sauce", but the cake was incredibly moist and wonderful. We ate it with ice cream,the whole bible study group raved. Thanks Juenessa, this is a keeper.
