One of my favorite cake recipes! I add 3/4 teaspoon of almond extract to cover any hint of the yellow cake mix flavor. I have made this for many people,and most comment this is the best cake they've ever had! I make a simple glaze with white sugar, warm milk, and a dash of almond extract.

i frosted this cake with pistachio pudding and whip cream. the presentation was heavenly. however, the taste was eh... boring. i couldn't taste the pistachio in the cake mixture even when i ate it all alone. the frosting made this cake, and next time i'll just eat the pudding. --UPDATE-- i tried this again because i needed a "green" cake, but i tweaked it a bit. i used 1 cup water, 1/3 oil, 3 eggs, 1/4 chocolate syrup and a drizzle of extra chocolate syrup when all the batter was in the bundt pan. i baked it for 45 minutes, and it was terribly delicious. the flavors were much more enhanced this time around, and my critic brother ate more than a couple of slices. now, that's saying a lot.

This cake is so great!! and so moist!!... I made mine with a white cake mix, didnt have yellow.. I also only used 3/4 cup water..I mixed in macadamia nut pieces..I did not use the chocolate syrup at all, instead made a chocolate icing and drizzled it over the cake when it was still warm.. MMmmm!! Cant wait to make it again for St Patricks Day dinner for dessert! Kiki (Brampton,ON Canada)

I improved the chocolate flavor by adding 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of instant coffee to the chocolate half. It did a better job of bringing out the chocolate and hiding the yellow-cake flavor. Overall, this makes an excellent and impressive cake!

i was in a pinch and needed a cake to make with things on hand. made this cake for my sister's birthday. it's a very pretty cake that looks quite difficult to make but soooo easy! my sister and i thought it was too oily and perhaps should be a little sweeter but the lack of sweetness could have been due to the oil. some other guests could not stop eating it - they thought it was GREAT! i'd make again in a pinch but would cut back on the oil and replace w/more chocolate syrup. thanks for sharing this great idea.

Great recipe!! Just like my mom used to make. Very quick and simple and it tastes delicious--especially covered with Cool Whip. My 15 month old daughter loves it too.

This is my stand by for the last 30 years whenever I need a quick cake. So yummy and a great crowd pleaser. This is especially good for people who do not like frosted cakes. Just sprinkle with a little powdered sugar and you are good to go.
