    StephsTreats's Note:

    This cake is a favorite of my mother's. Wonderfully light & moist with lots of milk chocolate flavor. It was given to her by a friend out of a (maybe) church recipe book. It was copyrighted in 1955, and the original recipe calls for "8 plain Hershey bars (5-cent size)", so we have to now guess at the amount of chocolate. A standard size Hershey bar (43 grams per bar) works great. It is cheaper to buy Hershey bars in 1/2 lb. or more blocks (I found these at Wal-Mart)(You need a total of 344 g).

      Very lovely tasting cake. I put a milk chocolate frosting on it and had a piece tonight. The cake is moist and delicious, It may not need frosting for some people, but we are a" frosting" family here.The only thing was the cake did not rise in the middle and was made exactly as listed. I used a 9x13 pan. I had the oven on 350 so that is the only thing I can think of, but I have made many cakes at that standard temperature.The size of the pan should not matter either. Oh well, it is yummy anyhow.... thankyou for the recipe.

      I found this recipe on here after searching for Milk chocolate cake because that is what my son asked me to make for his 12th birthday. I made it and the cake itself was so moist and delicious without frosting, I love this recipe I will definately be making this again and again.
