“If you love chocolate cake you have to try this one. You'll be converted forever. This chocolate cake is made with chocolate pudding mix, but it's not a pudding! The recipe was passed on to me by one of my clients. I thought I made a great chocolate cake until I tried this one, now it's the only one we will use and it's just sooo very easy to make, so light to taste, so chocolatey and stays fresh for ages. I also use this recipe to make cupcakes for the kids lunches. It's a sure winner for all. Hope you enjoy.”
