Hershey's Chocolate Cake

Hi! I'm Lucy!

I'm a home cook, writer, food and wine fanatic, and recipe developer. I've created and tested hundreds of recipes so that I can bring you the best tried and true favorites.

Why I love this Recipe!

Hershey's Chocolate Cake is absolutely the best chocolate cake there is! Cocoa gives it a rich chocolate flavor and it's never dry! Cover with my chocolate cream cheese icing and you'll have your guests coming back for seconds!

– 4 cups all-purpose flour – 2 tablespoons baking powder – 2 teaspoons salt – 2 tablespoons brown sugar – ¼ cup granulated sugar – 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter, cold – 2 cups heavy cream – 2 tablespoons vanilla – 1 egg for egg wash – Turbinado sugar for sprinkling Strawberries – 3 cups chopped fresh or frozen strawberries (thawed if using frozen) – ¼ cup granulated sugar (or to taste)

Ingredients You'll Need:

Start by stirring together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and then adding the wet: eggs, milk, oil, butter, and vanilla.

Then you stir in boiling water that has been poured over used coffee grinds. This does not make the cake taste like coffee, I promise. What it does is similar to what salt does to soups or any food.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove pans from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pans to wire racks and cool completely.
