Review of Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake Mix; Recipe for Moist Chocolate Cake

I promise we don't eat dessert every day. :)  I know it looks like it on this blog and as I glance back to previous blog entries, many of the recipes are desserts.  Occasionally, I do make desserts and it is always nice to have a good recipe when I have time to bake something from scratch...and a mix for the occasions when time is limited.  You will love the frosting recipe below.  I promise.

This chocolate cake mix from Bob's Red Mill is quite delicious.  I would rate it at 9 out of 10.
