I came to AllRecipes to review this because they credited Hershey's. Another recipe site refused to give credit so they don't get the review! I've never made a chocolate cake in my life because the ones I've tried are dry and tasteless. But, a birthday was coming and a chocolate cake was requested. I read the reviews here; used butter for the oil, strong coffee for the water, and Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa powder. Also added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter. Baked it in a Bundt pan. Served it for birthday and four people devoured it entirely within 1/2 an hour!!! Superb, not too sweet, moist...what I would call a gourmet, adult cake. I chose to not frost it as a superiour cake should stand on its own. Everyone agreed: frosting would have destroyed this cake! So glad that I found this recipe here and that you give Hershey's full credit for it! Well done.
