  1. Very light, fluffy and moist. Tasty but not fulfilling. I will go back to scratch recipes as, for me, they have more depth. I had no Creme de Cacao so I substituted coffee brandy. In the topping, I added a couple tablespoons of powdered cocoa to balance the Kahlua and Coffee Brandy.
  2. This cake was fantastic! I made this for Christmas dinner and it was gone instantly! Very moist and delicious!!
  3. Dark and decadent, moist and fluffy, so soft it cuts like butter ~ This cake is chocolate heaven! I used a Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® Dark Chocolate Cake Mix (less the enclosed chocolate syrup packet) because that's what I had on hand, and will surely be making this delicious cake again!
  4. This was great and took it to a gormet dinner. Did not have creme de cacao so just used Kahlua and it was wonderful, We also put a little wipped cream on top. Thanks Grace will do again. Di of B.C. Canada


I'm a self-taught home cook who reads cookbooks like a novel. Then I try out all different nationalities of recipes, especially the more complicated ones...I love a challenge! I entertain often and enjoy cooking for others more than for myself. If my friends and family are happy eating my cooking, then I'm ecstatic!
