There's a couple of good ones in recipes. Hershey's choc cake is good and so is the pound cake . They work well for 3D carved cakes too!

I agree with Smartin40...It is the BEST chocolate cake recipe. Very moist.

This is my most common chocolate cake....dense and moist.

Chocolate Fudge Cake

Heat oven to 325 F.

Grease two 8 inch layer pans, line with parchment or waxed paper, then grease and flour pans.

In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water, 1 stick butter, 1/3 cup oil, 1/2 cup cocoa and 1 one-ounce square [2 for a deeper flavor] of unsweetened baking chocolate. Heat and stir over medium heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool to room temp.

In mixing bowl, combine:

2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups sugar
chocolate mixture
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix on low speed for one minute, scraping bowl frequently.

Pour into pans. Bake until cakes test done with a toothpick.

Cool in pans 5 minutes, then remove from pans and wrap in plastic wrap until ready to use.

Does it carve well and hold up well for 3D cakes??

Not sure about carving (other than leveling) but I've used this one with the sports ball pan with no problems. I'm planning on using is with a little almond flavor added for a carved cake next month.

It will if the carving is not TOO elaborate....I've used it on a couple of my carved cakes, and they did well....

It looks like everyone has a favorite and here is mine. It is always moist, dense, and carves quite well. I threw out all my other chocolate recipes after I found this one.

MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE

2 C. All purpose flour
2 C. Sugar
1 t. Salt
1 t. Baking powder
2 t. Baking soda
3/4 C. Unsweetened cocoa
1 C. Veg oil
1 C. Hot coffee, (I use instant de-caf)*
1 C. Milk
2 Eggs
1 t. Vanilla extract

Sift together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add oil, coffee and milk. Mix at medium speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat 2 more minutes. Pour into two greased and floured 9" pans. Bake 325 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes, or until tests done.
1 recipe yields about 6 C.Batter
1 1/2 recipe yields about 8 C. Batter...Bake about 1 hr. 10 min. at 325.

* The coffee doesn't taste in this recipe. It simply heightens and intensifies the chocolate flavor. Since I don't drink coffee, I use Folgers instant decaf.
