Moist Chocolate Cake

I have something to confess, I'm a bit of a chocolate cake snob. I don't really enjoy the "birthday cake" chocolate cake or the chocolate cakes at parties, I usually find them to be a bit to dry and not really special and so I generally skip it altogether. Yet when I try a rich, moist chocolate cake I'm head over heals for it. This recipe is exactly that, with no flour and beaten egg whites this cake is anything but an average dry chocolate cake. It has become my go to chocolate cake recipe!
