Betty Crocker Choco Fudge Cake Mix Review
Our baking skills were put to rest when we tried the Betty Crocker Choco Fudge Cake Mix. Does the convenience of a boxed cake mix promise flavor too? Let’s find out!
When we discuss desserts, chocolate cakes deserve a place on top of the pyramid. Don’t they? Sinfully chocolatey and gooey, a good chocolate cake is like a blank canvas that can be turned into many other desserts like a trifle, or a pudding. Chocolate cakes also act as the perfect base for a variety of icings, ganache or even a simple whipped cream. Sometimes just a bare chocolate cake also does the trick.
Making a decent chocolate cake at home is not as easy as most cooking channels make it look like. The ingredient measurements are tedious and the technique needs to be mastered. Thanks to the many cake premixes available in the market, we don’t have to worry so much about the ingredients and technique. We tried and tasted the Betty Crocker Choco Fudge Cake Mix and here is our #FirstImpression.
Did you know that Queen Victoria was the first to have an all white icing on her wedding cake. Hence, came into existence the term ‘royal icing’.

#FirstImpression Of Betty Crocker Choco Fudge Cake Mix
Betty Crocker Choco Fudge Cake Mix comes in a box packing. It is priced at Rs 295/- for a 475 gram pack.
Making the cake – The instructions given on the pack are easy to read and very simple to follow. We made the cake by following the instructions given on the back of the box. There is a recipe of meringue swirled chocolate cake provided on the box, in case you want to follow that.
The cake is very simple to make. Just add the premix to the bowl, add the oil, eggs and water according to the instructions and measurements given on the pack.
The outcome – When you think of chocolate fudge cake, the first image that comes to your mind is a soft, gooey and decadent dessert. You expect a squidgy, dense, rich and moist cake – Betty Crocker Choco Fudge Cake Mix fits the bill perfectly.
The cake came out super soft and tasted very good. The taste was very chocolaty (which is expected out of a chocolate cake) and had a slight biscuity undertone.
What we loved about this cake mix was that it wasn’t over sweet, which makes it a great canvas to paint on.
Betty Crocker’s Choco Fudge Cake Mix produces a cake that makes for a delicious base, and you can use cream, fruits, or even custard to build it upon depending on your personal flavor choices. You can use this to create trifle puddings.
Slather it with a thick ganache or a light whipped cream. Decorate it with fresh fruits if you love the combination of chocolate and fruit.
