My go-to chocolate cake is called "Most Requested Chocolate Cake". I found the recipe online years ago. It is made with mayo and is very moist, very chocolaty and just plain yummy.
My frosting is salted butter, cocoa, powdered sugar and vanilla.
They neither one are very fancy, but they do pack a chocolate punch! icon_biggrin.gif

My most requested cake is my chocolate stout cake with Baker's one bowl chocolate frosting. The frosting tastes like homeade fudge! My recipe is listed on here as Trixie's Chocolate Stout Cake. You can substitute water or coffee for the Guinness Beer if you'd like. I do like it equally as well as with the coffee flavor and a little almond extract as with the Guinness Beer.

the ones on the side of the Hershey Cocoa can. It's the only scratch cake I make. Icing crusts really well.
