Black Magic Cake (Best Chocolate Cake Ever!)

When my mother passed away, a close family friend made us two wonderful cakes. One was the Kentucky Apple cake, which was a hit with the big guys, and the other was this moist, dense chocolate cake, which was a hit with my three sons and their friends. My twin boys requested this for their birthday with one stipulation - they each wanted their own cake, just for them! Oh, and don't be thrown off by the inclusion of coffee in the recipe. You would never know it's there. Matter of fact, if my boys knew it was in there, they would freak out since they hate coffee!

It's true... This is one of the best chocolate cakes we have ever made! Simple and straightforward, this is one of those recipes that everyone will love. (Be sure to have plenty o' milk on hand... yum!) The Test Kitchen
