Hershey's Black Magic Cake

I was looking for a recipe that a neighbor gave me years and years ago for a cake very very similar to this one. It is to die for. When you mix it up, the batter will be runny, don't freak out. The first time I made it, I did. But it is one of the moistest cakes you will ever eat. This is from the Hershey's kitchens on www.hersheys.com. Let me know what you think!
 2 cups sugar                        
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa

2  eggs
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk *
1 cup strong black coffee OR 2 teaspoons powdered instant coffee plus 1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
