I made this cake this in the form of cupcakes and used my own frosting. The cake had a very nice texture and was moist. While I would rank it well above the box mixes I used once upon a time, it was missing something in the flavor department. I used water and not coffee, so maybe that would have given it the extra something-something I was looking for. Thanks for the recipe, I will be trying it again with the coffee next time.
