  • 10-ounces Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars, chopped
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter

  • 2 1/2 cups cake flour
  • One 5.5-ounce can Hershey's chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease and flour a tube (not bundt) pan.
  2. Melt the chopped chocolate bars in the top of a double boiler (or in a glass dish in short bursts in the microwave).
  3. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Pour the buttermilk into a small bowl and stir the baking soda into the buttermilk. Alternately mix the buttermilk and flour into the creamed mixture. Mix in the melted chocolate, chocolate syrup and vanilla.
  5. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.

    Hi. I made this cake today and I used a non-stick tube pan which I sprayed and floured. When checking the donees on the cake with a toothpick it didn’t come out clean. It had already baked 60-70 minutes. It took longer to bake which led to the sides being overdone and burnt tasting. Any advice?

    Looks are decieving! This is an amazingly moist, fudgy cake. It’s so good it doesn’t need icing. I’ve been making it for 20+ years. I’ve Always used a bunt pan. It’s a t I was taught. It is a funny cake, as sometimes it will bubble over like crazy and others not at all. So always cook with cookie sheet under. Doesnt effect texture or flavor.

    Why can you not use a Bundt pan?

      You can certainly try, but there is a lot of batter for a bundt pan.

    Hi, this looks great! One question- salted or unsalted butter? Thanks:)

      Salted would be great since there is no salt in the recipe.
