A Variation On An 'Ole Favorite

My family and friends all enjoy Nana's Quick Chocolate Cake. It's an often requested favorite. I've wondered about different variations of this easy and tasty treat. I am a big fan of Paula Deen. In her cookbook, The Lady & Sons Just Desserts, she has the recipe for Gooey Butter Cake and has lots of variations. Maybe I am on to something here with this cake.

Feeling a little restless, I decided to try and see if I could stand in the kitchen long enough to make this "quick" cake. I substituted a yellow cake mix for the chocolate cake mix, vanilla pudding for the chocolate pudding and butterscotch chips for the chocolate chips.

I am pleased with the results. The cake is just as moist and yummy. The vanilla version is a not quite as rich.

What version to try next?
