Does anyone have a good, moist, chocolate cake recipe to share? Most chocolate cake I make from scratch does not come out the way I like it. I am still searching for a good recipe.

try out this one dear 35 min 10 min prep Change to: cake US Metric 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup cocoa 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup shortening 1 3/4 cups sugar 3 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon hot water 1 cup cold water Sift together flour, cocoa, and salt. Cream shortening and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in the vanilla. This is a very old recipe. We like it unfrosted, but it could also be baked in 2 (8" round pans and frosted. Very moist. Dissolve baking soda in the hot water. Stir into the creamed mixture. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with cold water. Beat well after each addition. (I make 5"dumps":dry- water- dry- water- dry). Bake in a greased and floured 13" X 9" X 2" pan for 20-25 minutes at 350F.
