    greksgirl's Note:

    Found this in Cotton Country Collection by The Monroe Louisiana Junior Charity League that my DB and DSIL gave me for Christmas in 1981. I started using the Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa a few years ago with rave results. Its this chocoholic's dream cake. It is incredibly moist and rich, as well as easy. I use a disposible pan and take this to potlucks all the time. You can also mix in a bowl with the same results. (If you use the frosting recipe make sure you use whole milk, I made the mistake of using skim once and it came out so thin that even twice the amount of sugar would thicken it and it was too sweet after that to eat.I had to scrape it off and add more cocoa.)

      DD (3 yrs) & I made this cake an 8 inch double layer instead of the 13x9 this time but are looking forward to making it again with the mix & bake in one pan method. I used Dutch processed cocoa, but otherwise made as directed. This recipe produces a deliciously moist & fudgy cake. The frosting is easy to make, easy to work with & also has a nice fudgy texture to it. The whole family loved this cake! Thanks so much for sharing, greksgirl! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef. :) You've been adopted!

      This cake is very chocolaty and dense, so much so that it is difficult to eat a normal size piece. Interestingly, it has no eggs in it. It does bake up nicely, but it is gummy to eat, kind of like peanut butter in that it clogs up your throat.

      What a delicious simple cake. It rose beautifully. I was nervous it might stick to the pan, but it came right out. Served with vanilla ice cream for a real treat. Thanks for posting the recipe!
