Years ago I made the original recipe that was on the Hershey's can. And it was very good. I didn't make it GF. So the photo isn't of GF cake.Sorry.

I've used this recipe for peanut butter cup cupcakes and oreo poke cake and it's amazing! Don't be afraid that's its liquidy because the cake turns out light and really rises. Haven't had a chance to try the frosting yet, but the cake is sooooo worth it! I do add more vanilla than it calls for, though, since it is really chocolate-y.
