So much tastier than a cake made from a boxed mix, this moist chocolate cake is perfect on its own and it is also ready for decorating. You can add icing, or plan to keep it light by topping each serving with fresh fruit like strawberries, raspberries or cherries if you’d like. A dollop of whipped topping would lend a nice touch too. Or, get adventurous and mix up the flavor and substitute mint or almond extract for the vanilla variety. Wrap any leftover cake tightly in plastic wrap and store leftover at room temperature for 3 to 4 days.

Notes

This cake tastes great plain but you can ice it and decorate it as desired (could affect SmartPoints value).
