    This cake is delicious...

    I made this today and yes, it is rich but also moist. Very tasty.

    I think this may be what use to be called Old Fashioned Chocolate cake by Hersheys. There is also a frosting for it. It is my favorite chocolate cake and icing. Not too sweet or chocolaty.

    This recipe makes a truly homemade, moist and rich cake. I first tried it just a few months ago and I'm sorry it took so long. It has body, texture, flavor and is moist. Better, and not much more difficult to make, than a box cake. Thanks for the reminder.

    You're right...I had everything I needed in my pantry which was a great plus and it is not hard at all. It makes a great tasting cake.

    Just checked your chocolate cake recipe. Oh my gosh! Does that look incredible. I would give my right arm for a piece right now and I just had breakfast. Well probably not my right arm but I know I would have a large piece if it were available.

    I have been making this cake for about 50 years or so. My Mom made it before that. It was always our special birthday cake when I was growing up. It became my husband and son's. It is not a birthday without it. I used this recipe to make my son's wedding cake. Everybody wanted to know where I got this scrumptious cake...Aha a family secret I said........................

    I think this is the one that was on Hershey's cocoa box for years and years. However, here again, I've quit using their products. It's another American company who 'shuffled off to Mexico,' not all of it but enough that put many American's out of a job. Disgusting.

    Oh, that's funny -- I just made this cake yesterday! We absolutely love it in our family and my neighbors do to. I've made it for years, too, and I cut it out of a magazine along with the icing recipe. I wish I were not trying to lose weight. I haven't had a piece yet and will try to continue resisting but it's hard!

    I know what you mean. Husband likes something sweet so I end up making cookies or cake. This was too hard to resist though.

    I actually did buy some instant expresso powder that I could add to it, maybe.

    I made this cake again but this time, it wasn't as moist. But still rich. Don't know why. Maybe weather affected it.

    This is a great cake recipe. My dear late mother in law made it for all the birthdays in her family, with 7 minute icing on top- YUM!
