My dearest friend Erin shared this as a thermo mix chocolate cake recipe with me.  It has been adapted here for those of us mere mortals with old school applicances. :-)  My youngest (and fussiest) child loves this cake, and if she will eat it, anyone will! I used it recently as a chocolate layer cake at an Alice in Wonderland Birthday Party, and due to the dense & moist texture of the cake it fared really well.
