For the life of me I can't figure why some folks did not like this recipe - it truly was Excellent! Moist and sweet, everything you'd want in a rich chocolate cake...It's even better the next day! Three very simple changes I made: #1)added 1/2 cup of light brown sugar...#2) used 3 tblspns of regular Hershey's Cocoa and when I ran out I used 3 tblspns of Dark Hershey's Cocoa...# 3) Make sure you realize the last 5 ingredients are for the author's icing...I make my own as follows: 1 stick of softened butter (salted), 1 stick of softened cream cheese (Philadelphia), and add powdered sugar to desired sweetness (approx. 1-2 cups) and you're done! I used a 13x9 rectangular non-stick pan and left it in there when iced and served (even decorated with Easter Sprinkles!...felt like a kid again). Great recipe, especially if you don't have any eggs handy. My hubby and guests asked for seconds! This recipe is definitely a keeper, would be a great birthday cake.
