    Ecossaise's Note:

    I found this recipe in the Hershey's Chocolate Lovers cookbook. I've had it for many years, but just tried the recipe this year and it is FANTASTIC!! Cake is very moist - perfect for guests. For the oil, I use canola and it is perfect.

      In large mixer bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
    3. 3
      Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed of electric mixer for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water - batter will be thin. Divide batter among prepared pans.

      NOT a good cake recipe. I was super excited about this recipe. I just wasted a good hour and a half that was so not worth it. The cake breaks apart too easily, tastes like a plain box cake... And the "cream" is runny so the cake absorbs it. I followed the instructions to the letter. So disappointed

      I am so happy I found this recipe!!! I made this years ago and lost the recipe. This is a cake that my family requested on many occasions. It is a little time consuming, but WELL worth it! Thank you for posting.
