Well to be honest with you, my first scratch cake was a chocolate one. I got the recipe from the back of the Hershey Cocoa container
Colletes recipes are good too, but I don't have the book here at work...I will post them later on tonight or tomorrow...
Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get!
I know this is an old thread, however, I posted the Hershey's recipe in a thread on the How do I forum. I think the thread is called "? about Wilton pans and cake mix." I posted their frosting recipe later in the same thread.
That Hershey chocolate cake is amazing and by far my favorite!!!!! And it even tastes better the day after making!!!
