Make this cake for when you want to enjoy a fine flavoured textured cake thats worth the time to make. This is not your gooey heavy extreme chocolate taste, think of it as a red velvet cake with more chocolate, a very nice cake for dainty bites, not huge mouthfuls. The cake can easily be sliced in layers and filled. Do keep an eye on the last 20-30 minutes of baking, as the edges might get dry, I tented the top loosely with foil the last 30 minutes of baking. Cake flour and chocolate extract is a must with this cake. I have made this moist dense cake on many special occasions, it is one cake that rates high on my list. Just a word of advise, if you are baking the cake in a dark metal cake pan, then lower the oven temperature to 325°F. This cake freezes well, and for some strange reason is even better after freezing, I think it must be the amount of brown sugar, so you might want to consider making this ahead, freezing and glazing it before serving. Of coarse your favorite glaze recipe can be used for this cake or use my chocolate glaze recipe #139987 for this.
