Very good for cooking with kids

If you have toddlers that want to try making cakes, this is a great way to start as it's basically just mixing stuff together and then pouring it in a tin. Tastes like the muffins you get in most coffee shops.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


Always have one of these in the cupboard,makes a very convincing chocolate cake, I add a tablespoon of instant coffee to the water for a delicious mocha flavour. Make my own icing.

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Not THAT great taste-wise

I was expecting wonders based on the other reviews! It was very easy to make with good results, however I could tell it was "fake" from the taste. It tastes exactly like the ubiquitous airy, spongy chocolate muffins in those brown wax papers you get in museum cafes. There's an artificial edge to the taste I can't quite identify. It also doesn't taste very much of chocolate. I would use it if I was in a desperate hurry but even for a child's birthday cake I think I'll stick to making my own. Can't fault the lightness though.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


It is quite tricky getting a chocolate cake moist so this mix is a fabulous cheat.

The Best Chocolate Cake you'll ever taste

In the 1960s my parents came to this country from Canada and for years my mother had the Betty Crocker Devil's Food cake mixes sent to her by various friends. She just couldn't find anything over here that came close. Eventually the world got smaller and you can now buy all the Betty Crocker products over here. My kids love this cake mix as much as I did when I was little - I have honestly never bought any other brand and have never even attempted to make my own as I know it won't compare!!
