My husband and I are trying to eat lighter but still crave sweets. This moist, chocolate cake really helps with that. With the rich frosting, it makes a decadent treat! —LaDonna Reed, Ponca City, Oklahoma

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 29, 2014

The cake is good and bakes up well (and I made cupcakes instead of a pan cake). However, the frosting ended up a soupy mess, even though I followed the instructions exactly and used low-fat frozen whipped topping, not fat-free. I cannot figure out how anyone could get frosting from these directions/ingredients. Because I made these for my husband's birthday, I had to use store-bought frosting (the sugary, unhealthy kind) which sort of defeats the whole purpose of this recipe. I will be looking for another frosting recipe to use with this cake.

I made this for company and everyone loved it. The cake comes out very moist and the frosting perfect. I love light desserts that taste good and this one is just that! Not too heavy, not too rich, just right!

I used full fat pudding mix and 2% milk, but OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS THE BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE I'VE EVER HAD!! Everyone in my family had a piece (and my kids are very picky) and they all LOVED it!! I am adding this to my list of permanent recipes. Thank you Taste of Home!!
