Lickity-Split Eggless Butterless Cocoa Cake

I had always firmly believed that cakes should be made with butter and eggs.  I found this recipe for an eggless butterless cocoa cake in Hershey’s Chocolate and Cocoa Cookbook which I bought in 1987. I decided to bake this cake for New Year 2014 and was greatly pleased by how moist and tasty it was, but my children complained that it was a bit rubbery. Still, it is a very good cake.
