      2. Sweet Lady Jane has what may be my favorite chocolate cake ever, and it meets each and every one of the OP's requirements.

        1. I recommend Mom's Barbecue on Vanowen at Hazeltine in Van Nuys. I've been given birthday cakes from Mom's. Not decorated but so good!

          1. Victor Bene's Bakery. Killer ganache.
