Not only is this cake so very easy it's so good! This can also be baked in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan for about 40 minutes or make cupcakes --- frost with your favorite chocolate frosting or see my Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing if using a devil's food cake mix you may omit the instant coffee granules or for an even deeper chocolate flavor add it in
