Need a moist chocolate cake recipe ASAP

It's only just gone in lol, had a rather big delay with visitors and the kids are a little hyper from easter eggs but eventually managed to persuade them all out of the house(the kids that is, visitors left by themselves).

The batter tastes lovely though so I'm betting the cake will too. We have an all out winner for the white chocolate frosting with the kids so I'm guessing thats the way we're going.

Well I'm about to start the epicurious double chocolate layer cake I'll let you all know how it went.

I was making chocolate truffles last night as I wanted to test making ganache and I'm considering frosting and filling with a whipped white chocolate one(as those tasted divine). What are all your views on chocolate cake with white filling/frosting or do you prefer it with chocolate ones(looks wise)?

That epi one looks nice, I may actually have to buy some cocoa powder lol. I don't have buttermilk as it's really hard to get hold of but have substituted natural yoghurt before with good results

One thing though, I'm a little concerned about the coffee. Can you taste it that much? Also between my brother and myself we have 10 kids under 9 years old but they will probably be so hyped up from the rest of the sugar and carbs I'm guessing a little caffine wouldn't hurt lol

I have seen recipes that include pudding mix but I don't think we have them here in the UK, it's a shame as some of the recipes looked lovely.

Am very new to this site and I did try to search but didn't get very relevant results, how did you manage that?

Thnx

It's my mother's 50th birthday on Monday and she has requested a chocolate cake.

I would like a really moist chocolate cake preferably made with melted chocolate as opposed to cocoa(so it means I don't have to go buy some)

Also I am using 9" square pans and would like to layer it so the filling would have to be quite stable would a cooled ganache do the trick maybe?
We've just had mother's day here in the UK and I made a marble cake with a custard/gravy frosting recipe i got from here and it was anything but stable lol(delicious none the less!)

Thanks
