I have a really good coconut cake recipe but was craving chocolate, so I switched out a few ingredients. This is what I came up with. I took it to work (my co-workers are my guinea pigs, ha) and they all loved it! I hope you do too.
-So sorry I haven’t answered the recent questions. I’ve not been online and am just now seeing everyone’s posts.
Thank you for the nice comments from those of you that have tried it and want to try it. I’m glad you liked it, and for those that haven’t made it yet…I hope you enjoy it.
Pat…yes, I’m sure it will work in a 9 x 13 pan just fine. Just adjust your baking time.
Joann Bernard…I’m not really sure what to say about your negative comment and rating, since you are rating it without having tried it. Millions of people like the convenience of a cake mix, including myself, but if you don’t like using them, that’s fine. If I am looking for recipes and find something I might like to make, but don’t like something about it, I just use the things I like about it and adjust it to my taste. You could easily make this with your own cake recipe and make it your own, like I do. One thing I never do, though, is make negative comments to people for no reason. :-/
Sarah…wow…thanks for going to the source for everyone! Wish my grocery store would have a $1.00 cake mix sale! I’m really glad you liked the cake, too. I love using the mini chips as well. Let me know if you use the coconut rum and how it turns out. I have some here, and actually thought about using it in a cake, but haven’t tried it yet. Great minds think alike…right? I’m going to have to look for the Almond Joy & Mounds pudding mixes…yum!
Mary, thank you for the nice comments, and I’m glad you’ve made the cake many times and that it is enjoyed. That makes me smile.
Mona, I’m shocked that my recipe was in your local paper! Wow…how crazy is that? Thanks for giving me my 15 minutes of fame, hehehe.
