Chocolate Cake

The good old fashion chocolate cake.

Moist. Fluffy. Sweet.
Yes it is a guilty pleasure...there's just something about a slice of chocolate cake covered in frosting. Almost everyone loves chocolate...there's just something about the richness of delicate and yet destructive. aha...

This recipe was taken by Hersheys. Definitely worth a try. From what I gone through recently...baking is not something that's easy to do at first, but as you practise and learn from you mistakes...(which means actually finding out why, and not continue on with another round of hope and luck, mind you that was what I initially use to do) and sooner or later, the cake is picture perfect and delicious. Edible art...I can tell you there's little else that could be more satisfying than seeing your effort producing great results.

3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1-2/3 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup Cocoa
