Swiss Chocolate Cake

This is a delicious chocolate cake! Very moist. And always a huge hit whenever it’s served. This is the most requested cake at our family get-togethers!


  • 1 Swiss Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1 small Vanilla Instant Pudding
  • 1 1/2 c Buttermilk
  • 1 c Oil
  • 3 eggs
  • Frosting:

  • 16 oz. Cool Whip
  • 4 or more grated Hershey Bars
  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese, soft
  • 1 c Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 c Sugar


  1. Mix ingredients for cake and bake until done at 350. I do three layers at 8 or 9 inches round. Mix frosting ingredients until fluffy and thoroughly mixed. Put a generous amount of frosting between each layer and, of course, on top and sides. Refrigerate until served.

Hi, Does anyone have a really good recipe for moist vanilla and chocolate cakes that don't include box mixes or puddings?


Hi! I double this recipe. It taste good, but it too moist for my taste. I like moist, but this is MOIST.

Good recipe though. Perhaps it would be better if I tried it next time with a single recipe and not double it. Thanks for sharing!


Good recipe overall but I had to tweek it alot. Walmart didn't have swiss cake mix so I used devil's food and therefore completely changed the essense of the cake but I figured it was the closest thing. Also I must have butchered the icing recipe unless it was made to run a little so I used it as a filling instead. but somehow it turned out to be a pretty good cake!


Looks great ... question... do you use low-fat buttermilk, or whole buttermilk? I find that really makes a difference in the turnout. Thanks for sharing!


I used regular buttermilk, no low fat! ;) And the icing is not very firm at all, but it should have enough to it to not drip off the cake. This cake is super moist.
