If you are not a fan of cake mixes, this recipe is NOT for you! I enjoy tinkering with the mixes to see what can be added to, subtracted from or substituted for the recommended ingredients. Today's play-time began with a box of Pillsbury Reduced-Sugar chocolate cake mix and a handful of cappuccino flavored baking chips. I am quite pleased with the results - a very moist, fragrant cake that is a little easier on my waistline than most. I'm recording my experiment here so I can do this one again.
