This made a very nice and moist chocolate cake that was light in texture. I used the Hershey's Extra Dark cocoa, and it really made it look and taste rich in chocolate flavor. I made it in a 13 X 9 pan, and it took about 40 minutes in my oven. Recipe and chef chosen for PAC 2007. Thanks, Kennasmommy.
