The Cake: Updated

I made THIS cake, adapted from the back of the Hershey's cocoa box, for Christmas, and there's no turning back. EVERYONE loved it. And it's only semi-homemade, iced with Pillsbury's chocolate frosting, which contains no dairy.


2 cups sugar
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs (egg replacer equivalent)
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water


1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans.

2 Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans.

3 Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely before frosting.
