Everyday Cocoa Cake

On the weekend I made this cocoa cake for Roland's monthly chocolate fix.

I baked the cake in a 10" bundt pan and it turned out dark and moist, unlike some of the reviews on the Gourmet website. My theory about this moist result is that the cake bakes faster in a hollow-centred pan (such as a bundt pan) than a 9" cake pan and doesn't dry out.
