"Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake

                                    Happy New Year.....
                  For this new year day, I baked chocolate cake.. It was the best chocolate cake we ever had.. I have baked chocolate cake many times before, but this was the best.. It is a must keepsake in the blog/cookbook.                   
                   I found this recipe from the back of Hershey's Cocoa powder box. As the name says, its the "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate cake. I never tried the recipes mentioned in the product box before.. But this is a eye opener for me, i started trying the recipes from the box rather than googling the recipe.
p.s : I halved the recipe and made one 9- inch round cake.
