If you're looking for a new chocolate cake recipe to try this one for Chocolate Liqueur Cake may be what want. The chocolate liqueur helps to make it a very moist cake.

Please note, this cake is dark due to the dark cocoa I used. The dark cocoa gave the cake a slightly stronger chocolate flavor. Regular cocoa could also be used.
