Ora's Deep Dark Chocolate Cake created by Boomette

Sinful, sensational, and luscious, this cake is too easy to make to be this good! My grandmother gave me this recipe when I got married. Make it and you'll see why she kept it such a secret.

    First off, this exact recipe is on the back of the Hershey cocoa powder box. Secondly, it really just did not taste that good to me. And it was horrible coming out of the pan! It stuck so badly. I would definitely recommend using shortening or parchment paper.

    After making a disastrous recipe from this site which shall remain nameless, I was paranoid this wouldn't turn out too but my fears were ungrounded. The cake itself had a great chocolate flavor and was tasty on its own. I didn't make your icing because I have my own recipe but thanks for sharing your recipe. I will make it again. It was moist and delicious.
