Hershey's "perfectly chocolate" chocolate cake

          I just adore chocolate cakes and have bookmarked a couple of recipes from various sites waiting for some opportunity to try them out.I  bought the Hershey's cocoa powder a couple of months ago.This recipe was printed on the box and it sounded really awesome.I went ahead with the recipe and we all loved it. I just realised after making this one and this cake recently,that my son is also fond of chocolate cakes. So I am sure to come up with more chocolate cake recipes.You can leave a comment about your most favourite chocolate cake and a link to its recipe.I would love to try them sometime.
perfectly chocolate cake
Ingredients-
Sugar- 2 cups
All purpose flour- 1-3/4cup
Hershey's Cocoa-3/4cup
Baking powder- 1-1/2tsp
Baking soda-1-1/2tsp
Eggs-2
Salt-1tsp(I did not add)
Milk-1 cup
Vegetable oil- 1/2cup
Vanilla extract-2tsp
Boiling water- 1 cup
perfectly chocolate cake
Method-
      Heat oven to 180c. Grease and flour two 9-n round baking pans. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.Add eggs,milk,oil and vanilla:beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water(batter will be thin).Pour into pans. Bake 30-35minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.Cool for 10 minutes.Remove from pans on a wire rack.

Updated picture- made it again for a friend's birthday

      Hershey's "perfectly chocolate "chocolate frosting is recommended for the frosting. But I have used Betty crocker's ready to use chocolate frosting and  pink buttercream icing which was remaining after using it on the castle cake and chocolate celebration cake.
