Black Magic Cake

I have made this cake many times and it is the very best chocolate cake I've ever eaten. You can use dark cocoa powder for a richer taste. This cake is crazy good. It doesn't need icing. I have also done this as individual cakes served it with a chocolate wine sauce injected into it and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Is your mouth watering yet!  I will definitely make this cake again and highly recommend this recipe!!
