Like many of you, I love chocolate. I love it in drinks, as dessert, and even in sauces like mole. Thinking about my childhood, I am reminded of all of my birthdays and the chocolate cake that was always part of it; we usually purchased it from one of our favorite restaurants where they served homemade food and decadent pastries like this cake. Thinking about these moments, I couldn’t contain the urge to savor the fantastic moist texture with frosting (also chocolate) again, so I took advantage of the modern kitchen and purchased a box of Betty Crocker Super Moist™ Cake Mix. By adding a few ingredients I was able to indulge in my childhood memory.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1 box (15.25 oz) Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Devil's Food Cake Mix
  • 1 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tub (16 oz) Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Chocolate Frosting
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 bar of butter, room temperature

Directions

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Pour the cake mix, water, oil, cocoa and eggs into a deep bowl. Use a hand mixer to combine the ingredients well and get rid of lumps.
  • 3
    Grease the cake mold to prevent it from sticking and add the mix. Bake for about half an hour.
  • 4
    To check if the cake is ready, insert a toothpick in the center of the cake. Let cool for 20 minutes and remove from mold.
  • 5
    Place the butter, vanilla and chocolate frosting in a container and whip. Use a spatula to spread the frosting on the cake. Refrigerate if desired.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Serve the cake freshly made with a side of vanilla ice cream.
