The cake turned out perfect in size. I even got both layers even which I rarely do with store-bought mix. It also had a great flavor but mine turned out a bit dry. I think I'm going to take it out of the oven a bit earlier next time.
Can't beat a good yellow cake with chocolate icing. This is wonderful and seeing I am not a chocolate freak perfect for me. Even DH loves it. Without the frosting (believe it or not it is good without) it makes a great base for strawberries, or whatever fruit you choose.
This recipe made an awesome cake JackieOhNo! No wonder your dh requests it for his birthday. It is very special. The cake & icing were quick and easy to make with spectacular results. The yellow cake was tall, moist, tender and light, had a lovely flavor, with a great crumb. The chocolate icing was out of this world. Soft, chocolately and velvety, thick, rich and decadent. Thank you for posting a new family favorite that my dh is still raving about. Made for May Swap/Aussie
