This is an original Hershey's recipe for an incredibly moist chocolate cake. I have been making this for decades - it is the only chocolate cake recipe I use. The batter is very thin, but it bakes into a very moist chocolaty cake. You can sour a cup of milk with 1 T. vinegar if you don't have buttermilk and it will still be great. Enjoy!
