Very Dark Chocolate Cake
After ruining my first cake today (see previous post) I went for something quick and easy. This is the recipe for Perfectly Chocolate Cake, and frosting from the box of Hershey's cocoa. I used the Special Dark cocoa which for the money, is really pretty decent. You certainly can't improve on that colour. My only regret was not doing a whipped cream filling to provide a striking contrast, but the chocolate frosting was awfully swell.
You couldn't pay me to eat a Hershey's Special Dark chocolate bar (blech) but the powdered cocoa is just terrific.
The recipe is easily found all over the internet and at the Hershey's website.
