In need of a 1/2 sheet cake chocolate recipe that is awesome!

I have my 1st 1/2 sheet cake customer order coming up and I'm looking for an awesome, moist, flavorful chocolate cake recipe!

 

HELP!!

I love the Deluxe Devil's food cake recipe on the Softasilk cake flour box (and I have tried many recipes).  I frequently make it in an 11 x 15 pan.  1.5 times the recipe is perfect for that size pan.  For a half sheet cake (12 x 18)  doubling it should be perfect.  This has a very deep chocolate flavor, but is not dense.  It is also  easy to make.  For your size pan, I would recommend several heat core nails, and would wrap the outside with bake even strips.  Good luck!

 

I think it is OK to post it since it available on the internet.
