Cake Recipe:Dark Chocolate Cake

It is one amazing chocolaty bite after another of a rich, delicious taste
Especially Dark Chocolate Cake
Hershey has created a tasty recipe for Especially Dark Chocolate Cake. While this recipe is extremely tasty and easy to make, this reviewer found the texture to be a little on the dry side. It could possibly be the boiled water that is added to the cake batter but there is no way to tell which component makes it a tad bit dry. However, when paired with the creamy extremely dark chocolate icing the texture is much better and silkier.
The flavor of this cake is phenomenal. This is definitely a recipe for those of us who lean toward dark chocolate. The bittersweet flavor is perfectly complimented by the smooth and chocolaty frosting. The icing recipe marries together ideally with the cake and provides that quintessential dark chocolate flavor that is a favorite of sweet tooth foodies worldwide.
Each bite is jam-packed with flavor, every bite offering a variety of delicious flavors that will delight and will keep you coming back for more. This recipe is ideal for having around as a late night snack or even breakfast for those of us who need a sugar rush first thing in the morning.
