There is a good scratch cake recipe on the back of the Hershey's cocoa container!

Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake
2 c. sugar
1-3/4c. All purpose flour
3/4 c. Hershey's Cocoa (powder)
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 c. milk
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. boiling water

Preheat oven to 350*

Grease & flour two 9" round pans. Combie dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin) Pour into pans and bake 30-35minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes and remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely before frosting

That is THE best chocolate cake recipe Mrs. Missey! The first time you make it you think "this will never work" because the batter is so thin, but what a cake it produces. Yummy!!!
