For my DH I chose to make this without him so that this way he would not miss cake. I had fun experimenting with it also.

A very good dense, rich chocolate cake. Served with fresh raspberries and whipped cream. DH suggested a scoop of ice cream with his next piece to temper the rich chocolate. I didn't have a 9" cake pan, so I used an 8" pan (almost overflowed during baking). A 10" pan would have been a better choice.
