    Made for 123 Tag. Moist and simple to make. I doubled the amount of cocoa and it turned out fabulous! I iced it with a vanilla icing and dusted it with some cocoa.

    My Mom used to always make this cake but we called it Miracle whip cake ( we have a totally different cake called War Cake LOL) So easy and MOIST. My DD says it is now her favorite cake. I debated for hours over what or if I should frost it. It was never frosted in our house. So I choose to dress it up (not that it needs it) with a raspberry coulis and raspberry whipped cream. Keeper for us and going in the divine Cookbok LOL Made for Photo Tag Feb 2009 loof thanks for this walk down memory lane and recipe. My Mom has Alzeimers and her cookbook has gone missing so this recipe has been lost

    This is a very easy cake to make and eat. I used half sugar/half Splenda and skipped the frosting. Nice and moist served with a scoop of cool Whip Lite on each slice. Thanks for sharing looof! Made for your win in Football Pool 2010 - Divisional Playoffs.

    Very nice moist cake and not overly sweet. I drizzled it with a mixture of 1/2 cup icing sugar, 1/4 cup cocoa and 6 tsps milk, then I topped it with shaved white and dark chocolate. Will make again, thanks for sharing your recipe :)

    Absolutely yummy! I got compliments all around for this moist cake! Didn't have a bundt cake but it looked good in a springform pan. I used Recipe#235451 to drizzle.
