Dense chocolate cake recipe/suggestions?

SapphireWingstarSapphireWingstar Registered Users Posts: 381
I'm making an ice cream cake for one of my best friend for her birthday. I'm still figuring out the logistics of the whole ice cream cake thing, but it's been determined that a DENSE cake would best for the cake part...which makes sense, all the ice cream cakes I've had have had pretty dense cake.

So now I need a recipe for dense chocolate cake. Or suggestions for a cake mix. :D

Any tips for making ice cream cakes would also be appreciated.

    This is my choc brownies recipe, its very dense and moist...but you could reduce the number of eggs to make it less moist. Also let it refrigerate it for a while before you try and move it around because it stays very soft until cool.

    200g dark chocolate
    200g margarine or butter
    4 eggs
    1 cup of caster sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    1 1/3 cups of plain flour

    - beat eggs, sugar and vanilla together
    - melt chocolate and butter
    - mix all ingredients and bake until a skewer comes out clean when tested.

    I make cakes and decorate them usually with fondant, so the cakes need to be dense to stand up to the weight of the decoration, and also to being stacked. I use this one for chocolate cakes: dense enough not to collapse, but moist, very tasty and extremely easy! :) This recipe is for one cake / layer.

    Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake

    2 cups flour
    2 cups sugar
    ½ cup cocoa powder
    1½ teaspoons sodium bicarbonate
    1½ cups milk
    ½ cup butter
    2 teaspoons vanilla essence / vanilla sugar
    2 large eggs
    Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
    1. Measure out everything but the eggs directly into your mixer bowl.
    2. Mix on low speed until just incorporated.
    3. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes.
    4. Add eggs, beat on high speed again for 2 minutes.
    5. Pour into greased baking tray and bake until a skewer comes out clean.
