Chocolate Sour Cream Cake (Much like the White Almond Sour Cream Cake)
This cake has a nice mild chocolate flavor, and is dense enough to work well with carved cakes. However, if you have a lot of intricate carving to do, the “Durable Recipe” in the Recipe section is probably the best bet. Enjoy!
** For a deeper chocolate taste you can add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and replace the water with 1 cup strong brewed or instant coffee.
1 Devil’s Food cake mix
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1 cup water (we usually replace the water with 1 cup brewed or instant coffee, it enhances the chocolate flavor)
3 whole eggs
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- Combine dry ingredients and stir. In mixing bowl, combine sour cream, water, eggs, & flavorings. Add about 1/2 of the dry ingredients and blend together, then add the rest of the dry ingredients & mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Pour into prepared pans and bake as at 325 degrees until middle of cake springs back when touched.
THIS ALSO WORKS WELL FOR CUPCAKES
