Chocolate Cake with Sour Cream
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
Absolutely wonderful recipe! Not sure I understand folks rating a recipe poorly when it’s their ability to follow the recipe at fault. Never get that! This cake is moist and has wonderful texture and taste.
I made it for Christmas dinner and it was a hit! My seven year old daughter loves it and just requested it for her next birthday!
This cake turns out beautifully and was a great hit with my family. I followed the instructions to the letter. Rich & smooth flavor. Wonderful presentation!
I don't know how this tastes yet, but I had big clumps of chocolate in my batter. I think that if I try this again (a big if) I might mix the chocolate with just 1 other ingredient before combining all the liquids.
Made this for a work potluck- it was a huge hit! I accidentally cooked the cake for too long so it ended up just a little dry, however it still tasted great. I will definitely make this again!
This is my all-time favorite go-to chocolate cake recipe. I first found it on the back of a Gold Medal flour bag years ago.To the reviewer who mentioned getting clumps of chocolate in the batter and the frosting: After melting the chocolate at a low heat and stirring it to make sure it's smooth, add it to the rest of the mixture as quickly as possible and beat it in at once very thoroughly. I've had those clumps form when I've let the chocolate cool too much--but don't add it when it's too warm, either. It can be tricky.To the reviewer who found the cake a little dry: Try baking it for a shorter time. When you test it with a toothpick, a few crumbs might adhere to the pick. Take it out of the oven to cool--the cake will continue baking even though it's out of the oven during the 10 min. cooling time.
This cake is sooo moist and chocolaty! I took it to work and coworkers said the cake was so good that it ought to be a sin to to indulge in it.:)
This is my all-time favorite chocolate cake. It's very moist and quite rich.
I've made this several times for family and friends and they all rave about it and want the recipe. It is now my husbands favorite
This cake was good, but why doesthe chocolate end up in small chunks that didn't even bake out? Same with the frosting...what am I doing wrong?
