This is probably the best chocolate cake I have ever eaten. It is so moist and flavorful, even the next day. The original recipe says the pans should be greased and floured. When I made it, I had trouble getting it out, so I suggest using parchment paper and greasing and flouring that as well.

"I am making this cake for Spane's 7th birthday party. It was really, really good the first time I made it, and I know this is a never fail cake."
