A couple of years ago, my mother taught me to make her dense but moist chocolate birthday cake. She calls it 'dump-it cake' because you mix all of the ingredients in a pot over medium heat, then dump the batter into a cake pan to bake.
I love the size of this cake!!! I need to see if I can make my cake this size by cutting down!!!! The frosting is also amazing--chocolate chips and sour cream!!
For the real hard-core chocolate lovers; this wicked windmill chocolate cake is a true masterpiece that's guaranteed to wow your guests.
Coffee-Chocolate Layer Cake with Mocha-Mascarpone Frosting - Bon Appétit - in comments it says the frosting is lighter than the photo shows, more milk-chocolatey looking. Still sounds like a yummy recipe!
