Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake

Looking for the perfect chocolate cake?  Look no further!  This cake is chocolate-y, super moist, yet springy, and absolutely delicious!  This one is one of our family favorites, whether as a sheet cake glazed with toffee syrup before being topped with whipped cream or as a layer cake filled with raspberry preserves. This is one chocolate cake that you just can't go wrong with, no matter what you decide to do with it.  As much as I am just not a fan of Hershey's chocolate or their cocoa, you'd never know that it was Hershey's with this oh-so-wonderful cake.  Enjoy :).

2c sugar
1-3/4 c all-purpose flour
3/4c Hershey's Cocoa
1-1/2 baking powder
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1c milk
1/2c vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1c boiling water

1. Heat oven to 350F.  Grease and flour two 9-in baking pans. 

2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla.

3. Beat on med. speed 2 min.  Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin).  Pour into pans.

4. Bake 30-35 min or until a toothpick comes out clean.

5. An alternative test would be to touch the center of the cake for springiness.  Once it is springy, it is done.

6. Cool 10 minutes (do not let sit in pan too long or it will stick).  Remove from pan and cool completely before frosting
