SOUR CREAM CHOCOLATE CAKE!!!!

The sour cream adds a subtle tanginess to this moist, chocolate-y cake. I made this for Justin’s birthday and loved it!

SOUR CREAM CHOCOLATE CAKE

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 °F.
Dissolve cocoa in the boiling water; let stand until cool.
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well. Add cocoa mixture; beat well.
Pour into three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
