Adapted from the Hershey’s “Especially Dark” Chocolate Cake Recipe.


  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 3½ Cups cake flour
  • ¾ Cup dark cocoa
  • 1½ Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1½ Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Cup whole milk
  • ½ Cup vegetable oil
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 Cup boiling water
  • 1 Cup dark chocolate chips


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

In a large bowl, stir all dry ingredients together until thoroughly combined.  Beat extract, eggs, milk and oil until creamy (about 1 minute) and slowly stir in the dry ingredients until combined. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the cake batter in the pan, and bake for roughly 30 minutes. Once cake is done, allow it to cool completely and drizzle with dark chocolate ganache.
