Anne’s Deep Dark Chocolate Cake Mix

Chocolate cake – warm fudgy layers topped with a creamy frosting – this is the cake I love most of all. I was on a mission to come up with an amazing chocolate cake mix that resulted in a cake that tasted as good as my mom made, but didn’t require an afternoon to assemble. And here it is. Bake this luscious cake for birthdays, dinner parties, even on weeknights. You’ll love the quick ease and the rich, deep chocolate aroma and flavor that I hope will bring back happy memories for you, too.

Nothing Artificial

My cake mixes contain only the best ingredients (just 5 or 6 of them) with no additives, preservatives, or trans fats, but they cannot be called “all natural” because I use bleached flour. I think bleached flour is an essential ingredient in light cakes, so that is why it is in my mix.

How to make my cakes

It’s very simple to bake cakes from my mixes. First, open the inner pouch and dump the contents into a large mixing bowl.

For the chocolate mix, add sour cream, oil, water, eggs, as the package directions suggest. Blend 30 seconds on low speed of an electric mixer until the ingredients just come together. Then increase the mixer speed to medium and blend 1½ minutes, or until the batter is smooth. Pour into prepared layer pans, bake at 350 degrees for 32 to 36 minutes, and I dare you to not lick the beaters! I can’t resist them.


I hope you enjoy baking my cake mix!

About the Mixes

Buy the Cake Mixes

I’ve always dreamed of creating a cake mix that tasted like it was made from scratch. What if a chocolate cake mix tasted like my mother’s from-scratch chocolate cake? What if a yellow cake mix tasted like real vanilla and you didn’t have to doctor it up to mask an artificial flavor? And what if the cake from this mix baked high in the pan, was tender and moist, and didn’t have any artificial colorings or trans-fat? Still dreaming? No, it’s here, and just what the doctor ordered.
