Posted by DebraJAnother wonderful recipe from Margie, the former owner of Little Bitts, an incredible cake decorating shop in Wheaton, MD.
Margie's Incredible Chocolate Cake Recipe
- 2 Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Devils Food cake mixes (again the best brand to use) 2 1/3 cups water 1 cup Crisco oil 8 large eggs 1 small box chocolate instant pudding 1 small box cooked cooked pudding (it's the kind that you would have to cook on the stove and is usually right next to the instant) 1 envelope Dream Whip (also in the baking aisle in powder form -- normally comes two envelopes in a box) 2 Tbsp Apple Cider vinegar (works better than plain vinegar)
Combine all ingredients. Blend until moistened and then beat on medium speed four to five minutes. Bake in a 350 degree oven and depending on what size cake pans you use, check after 20 minutes. Cake is done when you can stick a fork in the middle and it comes out clean. Makes one 12x18 sheet cake or (4) 8" or 9" cake layers, (2) 13x9x2 layers or a lot of cupcakes. Freezes well. I won't touch it.
