Maybe you could use dark cocoa and/or a stronger coffee? I make the "Darn Good Chocolate Cake" recipe and use a lot of chocolate in my milk and mini chocolate chips and get rave reviews every time. HTH.

I had the same problem with chocolate Waac. It was a total disaster. I prefer the cake mix doctor's devils food cake which uses buttermilk for the liquid and a few tablespoons of cocoa. Here is the recipe

Comes out perfect everytime. Several people on here like the Sturdy 3d cake recipe for chocolate cakes. I haven't tried it yet but I will one day.

Honestly, I'm a simple girl, and having WASC memorized makes me want to use it for every cake.

I was not impressed with the lack of chocolate-yness so I added 1/2 bag of choco chips per box of mix and a little cocoa. Deeeeeelish!

Ditto. I substitute about 1/2 cup of powdered cocoa for the same amount of flour.

I'm probably pushing the ratios a bit because cocoa has quite a bit more fat in it than does flour.

I use chocolate milk and shave the chocolate - a full 12 ounces per mix.

WASC stands for White Almond Sour Cream cake . You will find it in the recipe section . Tastes great and can be doctored for different flavours icon_smile.gif
