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!

Tastes like it was made from scratch. Very good. You can't stop with one piece. It was done in one hour for me. I put a chocolate frosting on it and it was delicious.
