Black Magic Cake (Best Chocolate Cake Ever!)

When my mother-in-law passed away, a close family friend made us two wonderful cakes. One was the Kentucky Apple cake, which was a hit with the guys, and the other was this moist, dense chocolate cake, which was a hit with my kids and their friends and me as will.
