This cake is sooooo good! I've made it several times now and it's always perfect.
Husband followed recipe to a tee, except we didn't have vegetable oil on hand. We used pureed pumpkin instead. Turned out deliciously moist, but with good firm structure. Thank you for a simple and tasty recipe!
Okay- This was absolutely amazing! I made it for my sons birthday two weeks ago and now am making it for my daughter's birthday because she requested it. I was tempted to substitute coffee for the water- but it was SO good just as the recipe was written that I did not. I used the new Hershey's special dark cocoa- Truly the best chocolate cake recipe out there in my opinion! 5 stars + Thanks Marg!
I found the flavor very good, but I made cupcakes with paper wrappers and they would not peel off. If I make this again I'm making sure to use a non-stick metal pan only.
I have made this cake for years. The recipe is actually on the Hershey's can... Hershey's Deep Dark Chocolate Cake... Its always been my go to chocolate cake.
Just wanted to let everyone know, I have made this recipe many times and it's EXCELLENT and so so easy. I just made it and forgot the oil all together. FYI---- it was still absolutely tasty. I could tell it wasn't quite as moist, but for those who want to cut the fat a little......it was still good!!!
I forgot the hot water and it was still so moist!!! This cake is the best chocolate cake recipe ive come across!!!! Dark, moist and holds a cupcake well.<br/><br/> I usually fill cc 2/3rds but read somewhere that it would fall a bit, so i filled 3/4 not doing that again.
This is a great chocolate cake - very light yet moist. Took this to work for a co-workers birthday frosted with peanut butter frosting - it was gone in no-time. My new go-to chocolate cake. Easily converted to gluten free using my favorite gluten free flour. I also added 2 T of ground flax seed and used buttermilk instead of milk as is my standard practice for converting recipes. Thanks for posting this Marg.
Moist and delicious! The best chocolate cake ever!
My daughter used this recipe to make cupcakes for my son's graduation party. The texture and flavor were perfect. She frosted them with chocolate ganache. So good!
