I can’t even remember what year it was the last time I made a chocolate cake from scratch (at least 15 years ago), but I do remember where I took it for dessert, and I do remember the hostess raving over how good it was. Well now I’ve found an easy way to make a boxed chocolate cake mix turn into a homemade tasting rich cake!

It started with an inexpensive devil’s food cake mix from my local Aldi’s store, and I grabbed it from my pantry one evening to make for my family’s “Friday dessert night” treat, but it just didn’t seem special enough. As I was mulling over how to fancy it up, I looked on the back of the box and saw this alternative recipe:
