    Lydia's Mama's Note:

    One night I was craving chocolate cake, but we didn't have a mix and I didn't feel like going to the store. I looked on the back of a box of Hershey's Cocoa and found this recipe. It is just a basic chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, but it is DIVINE. My husband and I both LOVE it and think it is the best cake ever. I will never make chocolate cake from a box again.

      This cake is excellent. I've used it for years and have recently made a couple of changes just to kick it up a notch! I use 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup melted butter instead of the 1/2 cup oil. The butter adds richer flavor while the oil adds more moisture. I also use 1 cup very hot coffee instead of the 1 cup boiling water. The coffee just kicks up the chocolate flavor, you don't taste coffee at all. The frosting has good chocolate flavor. To Gloss it up a bit, I add 1 tablespoon light corn syrup to the melted butter, then add the rest of the ingredients as directed.

      I make this cake EVERY time I need a cake now. It is my and my family's absolute favorite! I make it with the modifications noted by Soozzee on 2/25/08 and that makes all the difference. Especially substituting brewed hot coffee for the water, it is fantastic, so rich and yummy. Also, I add parchment paper to the bottom of my 9" rounds first so that the cake doesn't stick to the bottom of the pans. Without parchment, I had a couple crumble on me, so now parchment is a must. I make it for every family birthday, so so good!
