PMS Chocolate Cake

Ok, this is the perfect cure for PMS. Seriously. I actually got this recipe from the Hershey Website for the "perfect chocolate cake" and they were right, it's seriously perfect! I made two cakes in 2 days because everyone wanted a piece, mom, dad, mother-n-law, kids, husband and of course, me!


2 cups of sugar
3/4 cup of Hershey's Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 teaspons of baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 cup of veggie oil
1 cup of boiling water
1 3/4 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Great and flour 2 9 inch round baking pans.

Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake 30-35 minutes or until wooden toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely. Frost.

Ingredients for frosting:

1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter
2/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa
3 cups of powdered sugar
1/3 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Melt butter. Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency. Add small amount of additional milk if needed. Stir in vanilla.
