Hi, I'm on the hunt for a dark chocolate cake recipe.One that is really delicious - but not a mud cake type.I'm looking for a very dark cake with glossy, airy texture.Any recipes would be appreciated.Thanks

I can recommend the 'best ever chocolate cake'. Its a thread title and the recipe is within. Search at the side bar to the left.

This isan awesome cake, makes a good size, is rich but actually quite light due to the buttermilk.I gets huge compliments whenever I make this:
1 3/4 C Plain Flour
3/4 Cocoa
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
1 C Black Espresso Coffee (strong - and cooled til warm)
2 C Sugar
2 Tsp Baking Soda
2 Eggs
1 C Buttermilk
1/2 Oil (not olive)

Sift dry ingred and add sugar.Whisk eggs to break them up.Add all wet ingredients to dry - DO NOT OVERMIX.
Bake in a lined tin, it rises a fair bit so do not fill past halfway up the tin.
Cook long and slow - about 1 hour at 160-170c.
I ice this with chocolate ganache.
