Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Cake

2 c. sugar
1 ¾ cups flour
¾ cup cocoa
1 ¼ t. baking powder
1 ¼ t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 eggs
1 c. milk
½ cup oil
2 t. vanilla
1 c. boiling water

Heat oven to 350. Grease 2 9 in. round pans (or 9x13 pan). Combine dry ingredients. Add eggs, oil, vanilla and milk. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes--mandatory. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour into pans and bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. (Bake about 35 minutes if you do the 9x13 pan).

1 stick butter
2/3 cup cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 t. vanilla

*Never mind my unprofessional photography, this cake is excellent.  Thank you, Christie, for sharing. I had leftover frosting, next time I'll put more in between the 2 layers of cake.  I decorated the cake with shavings of unsweetened chocolate.  We were happy to find a reason to celebrate, especially my baby!

  1. Great recipe blog Ally! I have neglected mine lately. I hopefully can get back into it now that I am not pregnant and food is starting to sound good again! Thanks for sending me the link to yours. I hope you don't mind if I put it on my blog so that I can check it often!
