There are so many different boxed chocolate boxed cake mixes, I dont know what to buy. I dont want to buy each one just to test it, as I need to start baking for a friends cake tomorrow!

What are your favorites? Just going from memory, I seen swiss, devils food, german, fudge...

I usually use German, but only because thats all ive tried!

I personally like and so do others I have made cakes for.....Betty Crockers Chocolate Fudge cake. There is a recipe on here with it tweaked. The recipe on here adds a box of Chocolate Fudge pudding and chocolate syrup mixed with milk.

I actually had to stop a woman in the baking isle and ask what the difference between devils food and choc cake was!

I made a reese pb cake with devils food recently. Then the next week I made a cake with the choc. fudge.

I have to say that I thought the devils food was better, i used duncan hines, both dr. with pudding added. The devils food was richer, more choc. taste.

I love the Pillsbury Dark Choc. Cake, I use that one the most, taste like a home made cake to me.

betty crocker, chocolate fudge makes an incredibly moist, chocolaty cake. I bake this most by far, but have recently been shying away from it since whenever i bake with it i get massive, deep cracks down the middle of the cake. THe last time i thinned the recipe using more water and it seemed to help a bit,but not completely. Been too afraid to bake it since.

Do you know the name or submitter of the recipe? There are so many to go through.
