Post Velvety smooth cake recipe?

I have been searching for a cake recipe that is dense and velvety (but not pound cake), but still light and fluffy, without the bubbles and "airyness". A bakery from when I was a child had this type of cake and I am unable to duplicate it! I have tried many homemade recipes and box recipes....any ideas?????

I am open to any flavor, it's really the consistency I was looking for.

It sounds like a severe contradiction in terms. Perhaps you should provide an example of what you want.

Rana - I completely understand what you mean and have been searching for the very same recipe. Have you been successful in finding it? Please say yes!!! I would love to find it finally.
