This is a decadent chocolate fudge cake recipe, with just the right hint of Baileys to make it extra-special. The cake is great to serve for dinner parties or even birthdays. Everyone loves it.
I really liked the icing on this. I didn't think I would with the sour cream. However, it actually tasted like a nicely flavor ganache. The cake however, I thought had an odd dense yet spongy texture and was very bland. It almost reminded me of a diet brownie. The recipe indicated to use a purchased chocolate sauce. The only chocolate sauce I know of is store bought or a homemade type of Hershey's syrup. Maybe, fudge sauce was meant? I am from the U.S., so it was not clear to me. I may just make a flourless chocolate cake next time and use the sour cream ganache on top. It was a little less sweet than traditional ganache, which I liked. We ate 2 pieces, but I think the rest will get tossed. I am not sure what happened to the texture and flavor of the cake? I did double check the conversion of metric to U.S. to. Hmm - 07 Mar 2012
