This recipe is so easy and yummy! I get requests for this recipe whenever I take this dessert somewhere. You can use a chocolate Jiffy cake mix...use the entire amount if you do. Prepare the cake according to package directions, but use only about 2/3 of the batter in the cake pan. Use the rest of the batter to make cupcakes. This cake can be made a day ahead (in fact, I prefer it when made ahead).
