  1. If you get a container of Hershey's cocoa the choc. cake recipe on the back is easy and delicious.

    1. My son makes this one. It's really easy and moist. For the buttermilk, we've used sour cream, yogurt and made buttermilk substitution (milk and vinegar) and it turned out fine. And, it's perfect for the season! The only problem we've had, as with some reviews, is it sometimes sticks so use a lot of butter for the pan.

      1. Thanks, will have to go to store to get can.

        1. try a depression (era) chocolate cake. i've made this recipe and it turned out extremely well (also, the omni's had no idea there was no dairy included):

          1. The Hellman's cake is pretty good and easy too.
