      I have also been using this recipe for years. It is a good old standby recipe that is easy to throw together. Good with whipped cream or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

      I too had this recipe many years ago (and lost it). It was (at that time) printed on the tin of Hershey's cocoa. I made the cake when I had my parents and sister over for dinner one day. I iced the cake with 7-minute frosting and commented to my sister after we had dessert that the name was certainly did dissappear! Thanks for posting it!!
