I used this recipe to make a marble cake that I used to construct a 3D Thomas the Tank Engine cake for my grandson's birthday. It worked perfectly. So many adults commented that they LOVED the cake even though they don't like cake! This recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much for sharing it!
Going to try to use this for another THomas cake.. Thanks for the receipe
this my go-to for a moist, sturdy and dense cake. comes out great every time. i use Betty Crocker's triple chocolate fudge cake mix, plus add 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate cocoa powder, and substitute coffee for the water to enhance the chocolate flavor even more.
I just used this recipe to create a chocolate banana cake by adding1 cup of mashed bananas plus 1 tsp of banana extract/flavoring and 2 TBS banana cream instant pudding. i am going to fill it with a psuedo "mousse" -- instant banana cream pudding mixed with 2 cups heavy whipping cream (instead of the milk).
