The Perfect Chocolate Cake

Before I went home for the holidays, I went to one of my friend’s going away parties.  Since I love to cook and bake, I offered to make the cake.  This is the recipe I used, and it was a huge hit!  Next time you need a cake to bake, try this one!  (It is on the back of the Hershey’s Cocoa box)

2 Cups sugar

1 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour

3/4 Cup Hershey’s Cocoa

1 1/2 TSP baking powder

1 1/2 TSP baking soda

1 TSP salt

2 Eggs

1 Cup milk

1/2 Cup vegetable oil

2 TSP vanilla

1 Cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 350

Grease two 9-inch round baking pans

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl

Combine eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla in separate bowl

Combine dry and wet ingredients on medium speed for 2 minutes

Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin)

Pour into pans

Bake 30-35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean

Cool until cakes

(Bake a day before you frost and freeze the cakes overnight–see my tip from yesterday HERE)

Stay tuned until Friday when I tell you how to finish this perfect chocolate cake!

Stay hungry…
