I usually always have a few boxes of cake mix in the pantry, but always forget to use them because I prefer to make my cakes from scratch. The other day I wanted something sweet, and didn't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen and remembered I had cake mix on the shelf.

I used German Chocolate cake mix then substituted Strong brewed black coffee for the liquid, and used the other ingredients as directed, and the cake was so moist and tasty, & my husband loved it, I even used a canned frosting & he was very impressed with the flavor, hope you try this quick & easy dessert soon.

How to Make EASY CAKE MIX CHOCOLATE CAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES F. Follow directions on cake mix box to blend cake, but make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature. I use EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL INSTEAD of any other type oil. I also substituted Room temperature Strong dark coffee for the liquid part of the recipe.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a medium size bowl, then beat according to direction on box. Prepare the 8 inch cake pan by spraying with bakers Joy, and divide cake batter evenly between the two cake pans, then bake according to directions on box. Mine took about 35 minutes.
