Moist, delicious heavenly chocolate cake for any celebration. Follow this easy cake recipe and enjoy a bite of heaven. This is a sponsored post, Kraft Foods sent me jars of MIRACLE WHIP and this recipe to try as part of the #proudofit campaign.
Did you know that MIRACLE WHIP Dressing isn’t just a must-have for giving dips and salads a kick: but for so much more? The busy baking holiday season is coming up and I am going to be adding the one-of-a-kind bold, tangy flavor of MIRACLE WHIP in apps, entrees, and even desserts, like this Heavenly Chocolate Cake.
Ingredients for Heavenly Chocolate Cake
- 1 pkg. (2-layer size) chocolate cake mix (a pudding variety)
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
- 3 eggs
- 1-1/3 cups water
- 1 cup MIRACLE WHIP Dressing
- 4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese softened
- 1 tbsp. milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2-1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
Heavenly Chocolate Cake Baking Instructions
Heat the oven to 350° F.
Spray your 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray. Coat with flour; set aside. Stir cake mix and 1/2 cup cocoa in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, water, and dressing; beat with mixer until well blended. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 30 to 35 min. or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Beat the cream cheese, milk and vanilla with mixer until well blended. Gradually add combined powdered sugar and remaining cocoa, beating well after each addition.
Spread over cake.
(Tip: The frosting will be thick. Put the frosting in the microwave for 30 – 60 seconds before spreading it on the cake. This will make it much easier to spread.)
This cake is delicious! I actually cut a piece and put it on a plate and was going to take a picture with a bite out of it. before I knew it the whole piece was gone and I didn’t take the picture, so I had to cut another slice and get a clean new plate!
The chocolate flavor is amazing but isn’t too sweet or overpowering, and the added MIRACLE WHIP makes the cake so soft and moist.
My husband can’t believe I eat cake this way, but I have since I was little. I gave it the cake in a bowl with milk test and it passed that with flying colors too! It really is soo good!
