Chocolate Comfort Cake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
This sounds fantastic. We're chocohalics & I can't wait to try this. I don't usually buy cake mixes, but this sounds too good not to try. I made up a hot fudge recipe that would go great on top of this. It has decaf coffee in it & believe me coffee & chocolate are soul mates.
This is the same as the Kahlua recipe I’ve been making for years. Instead of the coffee I use Kahlua. It’s really a great cake. The recipe I use does not have the additional sugar which personally I would never add as the cake mix and pudding has plenty of sugar. Also the sugar is not needed in the glaze.
Family and neighbor favorite, for years. You cannot taste the coffee in this, for heavens sakes.
I had a quarantine-based craving for deep dark chocolate and this cake met the mark! It's not difficult to make and stayed moist and delicious for a week. So good, this recipe got me to join Taste of Home!

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAMILIES FAVORITES FOR MANY YEARS. I do not add the 1/2 cup sugar, and I just make a Grenache and add a glaze. Served with home made whipped cream, or heated in the microwave for a few minutes with a glass or in a bowl of milk. OH SO GOOD, please beg me to make this. It is a favorite gift at Christmas and special occasions also. My Grandchildren love it, and it does have all the sugar in the frosting etc.
Connie, the sugar goes in the cake not in the icing. The cake is sweet enough that you don't want a super-sweet icing. I thought the balance was just right. And the cake is so moist! I took it to a carry-in dinner and a couple of the guys there fought over the last piece!
Shouldn't you be putting that half cup of sugar in the frosting? You skipped it in the directions.
Everyone just loved this cake! It was a hit at the Super Bowl Party. Moist, not to sweet, it’s a chocolate delight!
I have made this twice and it fell both time during the 10 minute cooling period. I am at sea level so wonder if that makes a difference. Even baked it 65 minutes the second time it still fell not quick as much as the first time flavor is good though
