    I found this recipe a few years back in a cookbook called Cucina Deliziosa Cookbook. It is a very moist cake, but not too sweet!

      I too found this recipe in the Italian Cookbook mentioned. I have made it by mixing the fudge marble packet into the cake mix as well as swirling it. I like it better all together. It tastes like a chocolate cheesecake. Also, I serve it with fresh berries (frozen would work too) and real whipped cream. I also have reduced the sugar by half which has not affected the outcome.

      I made this cake for a co-worker's birthday, and it was very good. The texture reminded me of a pound cake - very dense, although not as moist as I expected it would be. I was also surprised that the additional 1 cup of sugar did not make the cake overly sweet, especially starting with a cake mix (which already has sugar in it). I used about 1-1/2 tablespoons of vanilla, and only a 1/2 tablespoon of almond extract. I did not frost the cake, but did dust it with powdered sugar. This would be a very good recipe to use to "spruce up" an otherwise ordinary cake mix for a special occasion -- I would like to try it with different cake mix flavors as well. Thanks for posting! -M =)

      What a wonderful cake! So moist and so easy! I made this along with 2 others for a bridal shower, and have had to email the recipe to 5 different guests. I'm planning on making it for a potluck supper soon and I think I'll try orange extract in place of the vanilla. I drizzled a chocolate glaze over the top. Thanks so much for the recipe!
