For those wanting a stronger chocolate flavor try these suggestions: Add a couple tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to the batter and substitute room-temperature strong brewed coffee for the water called for on the package. Finish with "Satiny Chocolate Glaze" from this website. Nice. Read More

I tried to make this tonight followed the directions and it looked beautiful...until I tried to turn it out. The filling looked gross and the cake stuck so bad that I cannot bring it to work tomorrow. Needless to say I made a very expensive mistake. I hope everyone else has better luck. Read More

This is an amazing cake!! I don't like to use boxed mixes so I found a homemade "box mix" recipe chocolate cake that is better than Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker! RECIPE:: 2c. flour 1 3/4 c. sugar 1c. cocoa 2t. baking powder 1t. baking soda 1/2t. salt 1/4c. veg. shortening. BLEND this really good till there are no more lumps(I used my bosch mixer with the whisk attachment worked Great!) This is your mix...you can use it in place of ANY boxed cake mix in a recipe TO FINISH THE CAKE ADD:: 1 1/3c. water 1/2c. oil 3eggs mix together and add to the cake like you would a box. Then continue with THIS recipe as "JO" has it written. WONDERFUL RECIPE THAT I WILL DO AGAIN!!! Gods blessings to you! Read More

Love love LOVE this recipe - and it's so pretty! I've made this couple of times for the office and it's been a big hit. I top it with the Satiny Chocolate Glaze from this same website and that just gives it a little extra something. Thanks so much for sharing it Jo. Read More

This tastes a lot like cream cheese brownies. I used low fat cream cheese and no fat condensed milk and it was very good. Much like cream cheese brownies just fancier looking. Everyone that tasted it liked it. Read More

Use a 12 CUP Bundt pan! Batter bakes up almost to the top of the 12 cup pan. Do not use a 10 cup! With that said this cake tastes great and is so pretty. I have made it several times and each time it comes out perfect. It really looks like you have gone to a lot of trouble. When really it is very simple. The chocolate is very mild so if you prefer a strong chocolate taste you will need to add to it. Everyone who has tried this went on and on about how good it is!!! Read More

My mother requested this for her birthday. I made this for her about three YEARS ago and it made such an impression she wants it again! This cake is really delicious. I think a lot depends on what brand of mix you buy...I find DHines gives the best results. The cream cheese is easiest to beat after it has come to room temp. If you don't have time for that soften it briefly in the microwave to make mixing it much easier. Read More
