Moist Chocolate Cake

 Saw this recipe  from Peng's Kitchen, I was enticed by the good recommendation.  Since I had some left over evaporated milk, this just came in time :)

Since I didn't have Valrhona cocoa powder, I just used the Hershey's brand which is easily available in any Supermart.   I used water bath instead  as I believe it should achieve the same result. 

This recipe is really a good keeper, it's so tasty, soft and of course moist.  In fact, I prefer to eat without frosting as the cake itself is already very delicious.   Thumbs up!
