Hershey's Chocolate Cake

gaynel mohler


I found this in a magazine many years ago, and it is the ONLY chocolate cake I make. I used to make decorated cakes for sale and this was the one I prepared and always had happy customers. It is so moist, and chocolatey. Great with a peanut butter fudge frosting. batter is very thin, but bakes up terrific.
