    I use Betty Croker Devil's Food Caake Mix and it works the best. I've made this cake many times and it's just the best. So quick and easy.

    I made this for a close friend's son who is a Marine and came home for a few weeks and he missed Portillo's chocolate cake. I used Betty Crocker Devil's Food cake mix as well and it was awesome. He ate half the cake.
