Instant pudding mix and cake mix cut the preparation time for this delicious cake that is loaded with grated chocolate chips. I often make it for weekend guests and work luncheons. It always goes over well.
"This moist cake topped with raspberry whipped cream is from a dear friend's vast recipe collection," writes Christi Ross of Guthrie, Texas. "It tastes like something Grandma would make and is pretty enough to serve at a special luncheon or shower."
"I first made this lovely lightly textured cake for my husband for Valentine's day more than 25 years ago," recalls Pat Eastman of Provo, Utah. "It's perfect for any special occasion. As an alternative, I've decorated the top with chocolate kisses."
Heads will turn when you bring this unforgettable cake to the table. And the attention will only increase when you start cutting—revealing the creamy, luscious cherry filling. —Victoria Faulling, Methuen, Massachusetts
You'll find this cake is good with ice cream, but that it's also delicate enough to serve small pieces for a tea.
My husband served in the military, and we spent 22 years moving around before "retiring" here. He's been a high school teacher, and I've been a wedding consultant. Now we're retiring again so we can have more time to spend with our two daughters and four granddaughters in the Midwest. "Grandpa" is looking forward to some good fishing!
Guests make sure to save room for this light and moist cake with its refreshing mint flavor and chocolate glaze. Its seasonal look makes it perfect for Christmas...a holiday birthday party...or other festive gatherings!
"You'd never guess this rich-tasting delicious chocolate dessert is much lighter than a traditional cake or brownie," says Carolyn Wolbers of Loveland, Ohio. "The applesauce adds moisture and helps reduce the fat."
Gateau (pronounces ga-tow) is the French word for any rich and fancy cake. I think you'll agree this dense chocolate dessert has just the right amount of sweetness. —Michelle Krzmarzick, Torrance, California
This cake perfectly caps off this dinner without anyone guessing it's lighter than most desserts. Broiling the topping of oats, coconut and nuts creates a crispy texture that nicely complements the tender cake.—Michelle Bishop, Peru, Indiana
