Discription:Seriously, who doesn’t like chocolate cake? If you enjoy sweets you are sure to love it. I won’t go as far as to say this is the best chocolate cake ever, but it’s really good! Chances are some of you have either tried this recipe or make it on a regular basis. This is the legendary Hersey’s chocolate cake recipe. What I love about this cake is that is has an amazing chocolate flavor, is easy to make and it’s very moist. What a perfect combination. You can frost the cake with chocolate frosting but butter cream frosting goes great on this cake. After I added the water I was a little worried because the batter seemed so thing but it baked up beautifully. This cake can either be made in two 9” round baking pans or a 13×9” pan. If you want to please your family and friends with an extremely delicious chocolate cake, give this recipe a try. Enjoy
