This is an excellent and fast layer cake. I whipped in up in no time - and it didn't last long on the table either! The cinnamon really gives it a great taste and with cake mix as an ingredient, you can't go wrong! I used vanilla frosting instead of the chocolate as I thought it would be too much chocolate. It was scrumptious!

I had some sour cream to use up, so I decided to try this recipe. I doubled the recipe and used a box of German Chocolate cake mix and a box of chocolate cake mix because that's what I had on hand. Instead of two-layered round cakes, I made two 9" x 13" cakes with my two boxes of cake mix. One can of chocolate frosting was sufficient to frost both cakes. This tasted like a good basic chocolate cake, but I didn't feel that the sour cream, cinnamon, and vanilla extract did much to enhance the flavor of the cake. For tastier and lower fat ways to doctor up cake mixes, I recommend "Wonderful Banana Cake" and "Apple Cake III" from this website.

This was the absolute BEST chocolate cake my family and I had ever had! The sour cream made it nice and moist, though it was very, very rich. If you don't like richness, I would suggest using a regular chocolate cake mix instead of the devil's food cake mix. I will definitely make this again!
