I want to make a chocolate cake for my friend's bday. He likes really gooey, rich chocolate cakes and i have yet to find a good recipe. I have good chocolate cake recipes but i wouldn't really class them as gooey. They are just regular chocolate cakes that have quite a light texture, i guess a gooey chocolate cake would have a denser, stickier texture. Anyone have a good recipe?

Julia Child's Queen of Sheba cake is really nice and (literally) "gooey". Part of the center isn't fully baked, that's what makes it gooey.

 

This one appears to be a match to the one in Mastering the Art of French Cooking: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/reine-de-saba
