Hershey's Chocolate Cake with Butter Cream Frosting

October 02, 2015

So, today, we are heading wwwaaayyy back in blogging time. 2011.  

Good golly Miss Molly! That's quite a long time ago.  A long time, but, what's a few years when you are talking about chocolate cake?  Not that long at all.  Alright, it's an eternity.  

As I posted in the original post, this is my mother-in law's cake.  She gave me this recipe the first Christmas after Mr Plain & I were married.  That would of been 2000. I didn't make the cake until 2011. Is that a terrible thing?  Perhaps.  

I still can't figure out why it took me so long to make it.  It is a really delicious cake.  Hence, the reason for the new share.  Also, this post has a frosting recipe to go with it!  A frosting recipe that is perfect for this cake, but, doesn't really have to be used on it.  This cake also goes well with a simple powdered sugar glaze or a chocolate butter cream. Whatever your personal preference.

Enjoy :)
