Delicious Chocolate Cake {from scratch}

Over Christmas break I got the urge to bake something yummy.  That happens every once in awhile.  :) I had to make something my mom had all the ingredients for cause someone else was out with the car.  And this is what I made!


This cake was heavenly.  So moist.  So delicious.  So perfectly chocoately. 


My family ate it all in no time flat.  It was that good.
I had to restrain myself from eating it all on my own!


I found the recipe from this blog.   Who got it from Hershey.

Here is the recipe.
