'Darn' Good Chocolate Cake

You could also call this cake,
Super MOIST, RICH, DENSE Chocolate cake.
I have also heard it called,
'Better then s e x cake'.
Call it what you will. . .
it is simply perfect and I must say a little sinful.
We usually eat this cake with fresh berries and a little whipped cream.
