    Reviewer: DIANE in Arizona
    * I actually really like this cake. I should say up front that I am not a big fan of sweets to begin with -- even if I wasn't eating low carb -- so the moderate sweetness of this cake is good for me. It is denser than a regular cake and a bit drier but not by much; I've had regular cakes turn out almost exactly like this if I've done something to cause them to "fall" during baking. I used unsweetened cocoa/butter instead of baker's chocolate because that's what I had and overall I think this had a true devil's food flavor.

    My favorite thing about this cake is that it makes a full 9x13 cake. I don't bother with most premade mixes because for the price you end up with something 8x8 but this one made a whole cake and it served its purpose of satisfying the craving for a piece of chocolate cake with (low carb) milk.

    Reviewer: Emily in South Carolina
    * No its not DQ yummy ice cream cake or sugary carb filled icing cake, BUT its pretty good as a low carb treat. Low carb life saver and it made a awesome treat as a birthday cake topped with a few strawberries, raspberries, and cool whip.

    Reviewer: Joni in South Carolina
    * Perfect low-carb birthday sheet cake. This is by far the best low carb chocolate cake I've ever eaten, and I've baked quite a few from scratch. I used the Devils Food Cake Mix following the directions (adding butter, melted chocolate, etc.) It has the puffy, cake-like texture missing in so many low carb baked products. Makes 12 generous servings in a 9 x 13" pan (maybe even 16 servings.) Frosted with Carb Counter's Chocolate Butter Frosting, it has 5 g of carb per serving, and you can't go wrong.

    Reviewer: Margaret in Wisconsin
    * This is our favorite low carb dessert for special occasions -- it is easy to make and results in a very moist chocolate cake. We substitute 1/3 cup of Irish whiskey for 1/3 cup water and make a whip cream frosting adding cocoa, Irish whiskey, sweetener, and chopped walnuts to the whipped cream. It is so yummy even our high carb dessert eating guests like it.

    Reviewer: Dwayne E. in Tennessee
    * Classic Devils Food - It's not the worst I've ever had but I'd hesitate to call it good. I don't think I'll be eating it all. Tastes a bit like a sponge with a nasty aftertaste. Prepared precisely with the directions. It's not dry and the moisture content was OK. However the texture is spongy but not in a good way to me. I used unsalted butter but it was still pretty salty. With other options I just can't see making things like this. It just does not compare. Granted it is lower carb but that's about all I can say good for it by comparison. I thought a piece of freshly made low carb cake might be a nice change. I was wrong. The dixie diner brownies make a better cake snack.

    Reviewer: heidi in Minnesota
    * Chocolate cake is one of my very favorite low carb items. Only downfall is that you have to buy baker's chocolate separately, but the taste is worth the trouble!

    Reviewer: John in Wisconsin
    * I was a bit apprehensive as to how this would turn out but it is delicious. I do not think I could survive on a low carb diet without Carb Counter's products. I have been greatly impressed with all that I have tried.

    Reviewer: Cindy in Kansas
    * Hard to review as I substituted a lot but here goes: I substituted 1 1/4 cups egg substitute for the 4 jumbo eggs, 1/4 cup sour cream, 1 tablespoon glycerine from NOW products (helps with moistness in fat free products), 1/4 cup apple sauce, 1t vanilla, 2T sugar free instant vanilla pudding, dry. This decreased the calorie count from 146 to about 70 for each cupcake (it made 12 full cupcakes) Frosting enough for about 6 cupcakes and was a little saccharine tasting but not horrible. They rose pretty nicely but were spongy as egg substitute will often cause. I would buy again.

    Reviewer: Sabrina in South Carolina
    * The taste is good but the texture is strange - not cake like really. The brownies are really good in taste and texture so I was a little disappointed in this one.

    Reviewer: Robin in California
    * The cake bakes/puffs up like a regular cake, but then deflates and looks more like a cake-like brownie when cooled. Very tasty with a good chocolate flavor. I used cocoa instead of baking chocolate.

    Reviewer: Elissa in Western Australia
    * Fast and easy to make, Dixie Diner's Devil's Food Cake Mix results in a sweet, moist and springy dessert that is a treasure for a low-carbing celiac dieter. The taste is enjoyable, albeit a little saltier than ideal. One caution: my cake was done at 17 minutes, a full minute before the advised 18 minute baking time. Overcooking yields a tough dry cake, so start testing the cake's center early.

    For comparison to another low carb gluten-free cake, Dixie Diner's Devil's Food Cake's texture is more like a traditional cake than Expert Food's Cake-Ability-based chocolate almond cake, but the Cake-Ability dessert is richer in taste. While I'd give slightly higher marks to the Expert Food's cake, the EF Cake-Ability chocolate almond cake is much higher in calories and thus harder to fit into a weight loss plan that counts both carbs and calories.

    I do wish Dixie Diner had a soy-free Devil's Food mix, but nothing's perfect. Overall this cake is a delight.

    Reviewer: A customer in Florida
    * I have tried most of the cake mix varieties and they're all among the best low carb products I've ever tasted. The German Chocolate, Carrot Cake and Applesauce Cake are my favorites.

    Reviewer: Judy in New Jersey
    * I really have to disagree with the other reviewer. I'm an experienced baker and made sure that I took this cake out of the oven prior to its completed time...and it was still incredibly dry, though it was spongy...but more like a kitchen sink sponge than a cake. Definitely a no-no.

    * Best low-carb chocolate cake I've ever had, and I have tried plenty before. Incredibly moist and spongy. It has become a staple in my diet.
