Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake

This post contains affiliate links.

Are you looking for an old fashioned chocolate cake recipe that is delicious, chocolaty and easy? Then look no further than the back of your HERSHEY'S Cocoa can. My family has been making this recipe since I was a little girl and we love it, paired with the frosting also listed on the can it is a perfect combination.


2 cups sugar
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans.
Stir together sugar, flour, HERSHEY'S Cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.

This cake is frosted with "PERFECTLY CHOCOLATE" CHOCOLATE FROSTING" which I posted here, it is my go to frosting and the most requested frosting that I make.

As I mentioned yesterday, this recipe along with several others posted this week were used at a "Chocolate Bar" that I had at party we hosted for the holidays. There are many easy ideas that you can uses for your own holidays entertaining.

What are you baking for the holidays? I would love to know if you are making some delicious chocolate recipes, I love trying new things! Leave me a link in the comments section.
