I usually add melted chocolate to my boxed chocolate cake mix (with milk & vanilla) but I've been reading CC recipes and just tried the original WASC --awesome! I want to try the WASC chocolate cake extender but saw that it calls for cocoa powder. I like a sweeter chocolate cake and am wondering if the cocoa powder might be not quite as sweet. Would there be a difference to the recipe if I sub melted chocolate? Thanks!
The Chocolate WASC recipe I have calls for added sugar, chocolate pudding, and chocolate milk. There's plenty of sweet in there, the cocoa powder doesn't take away from that.
I use chocolate fudge box cake mix, 4 eggs with yolks, 1/3 cup oil, 1/2 cup water, 1 cup sour cream, and 1 small pack of instant chocolate pudding. It comes out delicious every time! I've had tons of compliments on it.
