Default wanted: wonderful TNT chocolate pudding cake recipe

Hi All,

A friend on another group was opining that she could not find a
chocolate pudding cake mix anymore, and I said there were numerous
recipes for same. I HAVE lots of recipes, but then it occurred to
me that a tried-and-true one would be much nicer for her, and I
know some of you must have experimented with this. Thanks!

Betty Crocker's and Pillsbury's cakes (virtually) all have pudding in the
mix, so you don't have to add your own packet. As far as I know, Duncan
Hines is the only way to get non-pudding cake mix. So, if she wants to
bake from a mix, suggest that she check again.

I have tried some of those pudding cake mixes. I was not impressed.

She means the kind that forms a cake on top and a sauce/pudding on
the bottom. I forgot that was ambiguous.

Nor have I. I usually make Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake.

Sorry for the delay, but there are two basic variants:
The simpler one, which originated probably in the old
(not the newer) Fanny Farmer cookbooks, is on this
website, but use butter rather than margarine:

The more complex variant is he
http://www.recipesource.com/desserts...4/rec1449.html
Both are called Denver Chocolate Pudding Cake, by the way.
The use of coffee rather than water makes a far more interesting
cake/pudding.

Thanks! Have you tried either of these, or is that a general
comment?
