I'm addicted to chocolate and I loooovee this cake. Everything, the way it tastes, how easy it is, how you can change it. When I made it I didn't use coffee granules, but instead just used freshly brewed coffee which cooled to room temp IN PLACE OF WATER. First time I made it, I did with chocolate chips as the recipe states, second time I added some walnuts and peanut butter chips in place of the chocolate ones. I've made this at least 3 times and everyone in my house loves it. Definitely a keeper!

This cake was indeed very delicious and easy! I, too, cooked it in a 9x13 pan. For the chocolate pudding, I used a 4.5 oz package of a brand called Dr. Oetker Organics. I cooked the cake for 45 minutes.
