I have tried many chocolate cake recipes and this one is definately the best. The texture is perfect if the directions are followed properly. I've tried whipping the egg whites but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I do use dutch process cocoa and strong coffee in place of the water. It gives the cake a deeper, more rich chocolate flavor. It actually gets better the day after you bake it (if it lasts that long!) The flavor really gets more intense after sitting overnight under some frosting. About the cake getting a dome in the middle, bake at 325, don't overfill the pan, and I use bake even strips for anything bigger than an 8" pan.
