The girls @ work want me to make a chocolate cake to bring in on Monday (we've had a hard wk). I wanted to bake something that is different and not your ordinary chocolate cake. Any ideas??

There's a very good chocolate cake recipe on Cooking For Engineers . com

Still just regular chocolate though

Maybe try making a "mud cake"?

I have seen a few recipes for thes,e and they are supposedly very moist and fudgey. There are a few that look good in the recipes section here (the dark chocolate mud cake is on my list to make soon), as well as this one:

Scratch only? Or is doctored cake mix ok? I usually only bake from scratch (not that there's anything wrong with mixes! I just prefer to bake from scratch thumbs_up.gif ), but my favorite chocolate cake is a doctored cake mix recipe.

* 1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix (I ONLY use DH devel's food)
* 1 Sm. box Instant Chocolate Pudding
* 1 C. Sour Cream
* 4 Eggs
* 1/2 C. Water
* 1/3 C. Oil
* 1 C. Chocolate Chips

Beat everything except the chocolate chips for 1 min. on low speed. Scrape sides and bottom, and beat another 2 minutes on med or high spead (med for stand mixer, high for hand mixer).
Mix chocolate chips in by hand.
Bake at 350 for 50 min or until a toothpick comes clean.

I usually put this in a bunt pan, but you can do whatever (just be sure to adjust baking time!)
