Tested this out and it was wonderful! I am making for Thanksgiving as some members of my family don't like Pumpkin Pie.

I followed the recipe exactly except instead of preparing the cake mix according to the box, I combined the cake mix, chocolate pudding mix, 3/4 canola oil, 3/4 cup water, 3 eggs, and 8 oz sour cream. I also made 3 - 9 inch layers instead of splitting the layers. Everyone loved it and I'll definitely be making it again.
