    Everyone here agreed: It's not a really chocolatey tasting cake, but it's good. It is very moist. Would be great with chocolate chips added, served with ice cream, and maybe some hot fudge drizzled on top. Oh, and you don't taste Miracle Whip at all! :o)

    An old favorite in my family, at least three generations of us have made and loved this cake.
