    This cake is easy to make and tastes delicious. I personally prefer a homemade pound cake, but my husband likes cake mix cakes and really enjoys this one. I sometimes mix in mini chocolate chips to the cake batter at the very end, just prior to placing it in the pan, for even more chocolate flavor. .

    I made this recipe but with a flavor change. For father's day I made it using a white cake mix, instant pistachio pudding mix and one cup of chopped pistachio nuts. I baked it in a fluted bundt pan. It came out great and my husband loved it!

    My husband is a chocoholic...My girlfriend brought this for dessert and my husband loved it!!! It was extremely tasty and very moist. I liked it so much I had to look up the recipe. I will be trying my hand at this one in the near future.
