    Ail Blanks's Note:

    Sinful, sensational, and luscious, this cake is too easy to make to be this good! My grandmother gave me this recipe when I got married. Make it and you'll see why she kept it such a secret.

      First off, this exact recipe is on the back of the Hershey cocoa powder box. Secondly, it really just did not taste that good to me. And it was horrible coming out of the pan! It stuck so badly. I would definitely recommend using shortening or parchment paper.

      I did half the cake like Mikekey. Cooked it for 27 minutes. It's so moist. Instead of using 1 cup of sugar, I used 3/4 cup. After it was baked, I let it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes then removed it on a wire rack to cool completely. I did this frosting : Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing and dark rich. It's so good. Thanks Lynn :) Made for Market tag.
