Looking for Best Chocolate Cake Recipe!

I'm desperately trying to find a recipe for the best super-moist chocolate cake with a chocolatey fluffy frosting.

I tried the cook's illustrated recipe for "Best Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake" and though the flavor was good I found the cake to be too dry. Also, the frosting didn't remind me of the frostings I had as a kid...it wasn't creamy & fluffy, but rather stiff and almost greasy.

I guess the type of cake i'm looking for is like the Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines mixes. Super moist, soft, with a rich creamy & fluffy frosting. I want to achieve this with a homemade recipe rather than using a boxed mix.

There are too many recipes to try out on the internet...so if anyone can recommend one, that would be great!
