This is the best chocolate cake I ever made and it was years ago and I still remember how great it was.
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 correct...it certainly did dissappear! Thanks for posting it!!
Unbelievable! I lost this recipe many years ago. I love to cook and bake and had several binders with special recipes I cut out since 1961. I lost this particular biner in a move and thought I'd never find it again. It's a wonderful cake and I made ith with boiled white frosting or chocolate icing. I often put a layer of peanuts in the cake or between the layers of the cake with the chocolate icing. Thank you for your entry - I can't wait to make it for father's day for my husband who has brought up memories of this particular cake from time to time over the years.
