Moist chocolatey chocolate cake recipe like a boxed mix?

qwerty1 | Mar 3, 201511:57 AM

I admit I love chocolate cake mixes from a box like Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Dark Chocolate Fudge or Betty Crocker Super Moist Chocolate Fudge (though not a fan of Devil's Food mixes - nice dark color but not enough chocolate flavor IMHO). To me, cake mixes have the right combination of moistness and chocolate flavor and don't require any frosting. I find most actual cake recipes to be on the dry-side and not chocolatey enough (and this includes chocolate cakes at restaurants). Even when the cake is moist, I find the flavor to be lacking and needing chocolate frosting to up the chocolate flavor of the cake. I've tried several recipes (with stout, coffee, etc.) and none of them quite match up to the boxed mix. It's been an elusive search. Any recommendation for recipes that are moist and chocolatey like a boxed mix?
