Chocolate Cake for SWMBO's birthday: Give me your most absurdly good, chocolate-coma inducing cake recipes!

My girlfriend's birthday is coming up this weekend, and I'm looking for a really, really good cake recipe.
Chocolate-stuff that she's enjoyed (at restaurants and elsewhere):
*Some of the darker flourless chocolate cakes, chocolate lava cakes
*This ridiculously good dark chocolate souffle at Xiomara, served burning hot with a cup of ice-cold expresso-flavored milk stuff
*Sweet cream icecream at coldstone with brownies and raspberries
Stuff she doesn't enjoy:
*Too much richness (I assume this is related to cream content)
*Anything that is in any way artificial tasting ("berry" syrups that don't taste like they necessarily include much actual berry, etc)
I'm looking for a cake that someone will want to eat all the way through, instead of, say, a chocolate cheese-cake or something of similar richness, where eating more than a small slice is something of a battle.
