Hershey's Chocolate Cake

What better way to ring in the New Year than a perfect chocolate cake! This is one of the best chocolate cakes out there, it's Hershey's Perfectly Perfect Chocolate Cake! I baked this cake for my son's birthday party, we had a total of 3 small parties and for the first party, I made an eggless strawberry mousse cake and for the second party, I baked this cake.

This cake is so moist and so delicious and so rich! The kids who came for the party and the families who had this cake, enjoyed it very much. This cake is very similar to another chocolate cake in my blog, that's the Best Ever Chocolate Cake recipe except, that recipe uses buttermilk and coffee and this recipe uses only milk and no coffee.

Notes
1. I used granulated sugar but powdered it before adding to the vbatter.
2. I did not bake in 2 pans, I baked in one 10" pan.
3. Grease the pan well.
4. Do not over mix the batter.

Happy New Year folks! Wishing you all a blessed 2015!!


Until next time,

    1. Generally, if a recipe has baking soda, it starts reacting once the batter is mixed and it's not a wise idea to keep it out for long. It should be baked immediately. You can halve the recipe and bake it in your small pan, the timings will be less though.

    1. Hi Vanditha, thank you so much for the feedback! This cake is quite a soft and moist cake since we use oil. I'm not sure if it will hold well under fondant.
