    For batter:
    Sugar 2 cups
    Flour 1 3/4 cups
    Cocoa 3/4 cup
    Baking Soda 1 1/2 tsp
    Baking Powder 1 1/2 tsp
    Salt 1 tsp
    2 eggs
    Milk 1 cup
    Oil 1/2 cup
    Vanilla Extract 2 tsp
    Boiling Water 1 cup
    For icing:
    Butter 1 cup
    Cocoa 1 1/2 cup
    Powdered Sugar 2 cups
    Milk 2/3 cup
    Vanilla Extract 1 tsp
    Preheat oven to 360F / 180C. Grase and flour two 9-in baking pans. Set aside.
    In the large bowl of a standing mixer, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
    Add eggs, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth about 3 minutes.
    Stir in boiling water. You can use rubber spatula to stir. Batter will be very runny.
    Pour batter evenly between the two pans and bake on middle rack of oven for about 30-35 minutes, until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean with just a few moist crumbs attached.
    Let it cool about 10 minutes before removing from pans. Than cool completely.
    In the meantime, prepare a chocolate buttercream frosting. Use a standing mixer to beat the butter until fluffy.
    Finely add in cocoa, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
    Cut each cake horizontally.
    Smear evenly 2-3 heaped tbsp buttercream frosting over the first layer of cake, cover with second layer and buttercream frosting and continue that process with remaining layers of cake and buttercream frosting. Spread buttercream frosting evenly with a spatula all over the cake.
    You can also line baking pans with parchment paper circles.
    It's good idea to substitute water for 1 cup of hot coffee!

      U can divide into two. or u can use large pan so u don't need 2 divide. thought i didn't tray my experience don't add more salt pinch is enough and if ur new baker add half cup the water don't make more liquid. the icing it's good to be less cacao or use chocolate chips.
      i think it helps

    I’ve made this cake over four times this year and it’s never failed. Great recipe, it’s literally the only I’ve found that works, though I don’t recommend adding exactly one cup of water as the batter will become too liquified and it’ll take longer to bake.

  • Isabel Hargest

    The icing was very overpowering... very moist and rich! Great for those into that. I recommend adding a little boiling water to the icing and less cocoa

    I tried this today, it's super tasty guys, it's light and super moist, handle with care when doing layers as it will, fall apart that's how light and fluffy and full of goodness this, if you stick to the recipe.. You can't go wrong.. Ive tried plenty of chocolate cakes and this did not disappoint, if you wanna make it even yummier,do a chocolate ganache Icing on the top.

      @Tayylor Fierce i think you should devide it if you have the same pan size as in this video, i know it koz i made same mistake once, i made this recipe and used all purpose flour i think it doest make any difference in this recipe
      Ps: add a lil bit of boiling water to your buttercream it will make it better and easy to manipulate

    I neglected to mention below NEVER use 'cake flour' when making this Hershey's chocolate cake...I also learned bakers use a liquid mixture: one cup sugar to one cup water, heat until sugar is can add a teaspoon of vanilla more if you use a tooth pick to make little holes in your cake...then sprinkle the mixture lightly over your will never have a dry cake again..

    2 cups sugar? Not too sweet? This does look quite good. If I may suggest, two or 3 tablespoons of that water, have it be coffee. This is how Devils food cake does it. Doesn't taste like coffee, but really brings out the chocolate flavor. I am surprised using boiling water, looks like done in two parts.
