Back in the 60's and 70's Hershey had a cake recipe on the can that called for both baking soda and baking powder, as well as buttermilk. It used cocoa and always turned out delicious--one of the best cakes I've ever eaten. I saved the box for years and then somehow had a memory burp and forgot and tossed it out. Does anyone have the recipe I'm thinking about?

This one doesn't call for baking powder 'cause it's in the All-Purpose flour, but it does call for buttermilk and baking soda... and it's hands-down the very best chocolate sheet cake I've ever, ever, EVER eaten.

Did I say it was good?

Well... it's the best.

I can't tell you in words how good it is... I'd be banned, or locked up, or - at the very least - someone would have to throw a bucket of ice water on me or something.

Oh! Linky. :) (http://thepioneerwoman.com/2007/02/the_best_chocol.html)

Thanks, Suz,

Now bookmarked in the 'to be tried' file.

Went to WalMart yesterday and found that Hershey's now has DARK CHOCOLATE cocoa powder in a tin. Yeah!!!

I've only ever used Dutch Cocoa powder which is unsweetened so that would be dark right? I dont understand the concept of dark chocolate cocoa powder. you mean the regular hershey's cocoa powder is not like dutch cocoa powder? I had no idea.

I did try Suzie's suggestion and it was my cake!! They inhaled over half of it the night I fixed it and the rest was gone by next day. Now that the holidays are over, I've got to get one baked for me.

It's wonderful! I still intend to try out Old Fashioned Girl's recipe. It sounds delicious.
