Chocolatey Chocolate Cake Tips/Recipe Suggestions

SarahCW | May 8, 2014 11:52 AM

So I need to bake a cake for a work event on Wednesday. I would like to bake it this weekend and freeze it and assemble it Wednesday morning to serve that afternoon. I don't get very many opportunities to bake cake, so I want to make something good--and this is an occasion that calls for chocolate. Lots of chocolate. I'd thought to do a chocolate cake with a chocolate raspberry ganache. I'm not a huge fan of buttercream frostings.

What I really want is a suggestion for a recipe that is tried and true to produce a really moist and chocolatey cake. I find some chocolate cakes don't have an intense chocolate flavor, but I've not made a lot of chocolate cakes, and fewer even from scratch.

I'm a pretty big novice baker, and don't have a stand mixer, but am willing to experiment. So suggestions are welcome for successful chocolate cake baking!
