Simple to make, simple to eat and enjoy, this basic chocolate cake with soured cream and just a hint of vanilla is..simply delicious! Mint icing makes a great topper for this one.
I made this for my husband for Father's Day, and used a chocolate frosting recipe I found on this site that used cream cheese and baker's chocolate and put candied mint-leaves on top. I think it's really really good! The cake is very rich and moist! I've got the leftover cake in the refrigerator and if you put a slice in the microwave for 20 seconds, and top with ice cream, it's delicious. The frosting microwaves well because of the cream cheese. - 23 Jun 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a great recipe. I didn't have bakers chocolate, SO instead I used hersheys natural cocoa powder mixed with the amount of water recipe indicates and a tablespoon extra of butter. This cake is not super chocolaty as I thought, it is sutble. perfect with some white whipped frosting and sliced strawberrys. It was a major hit , I am definatly making this cake again. btw i chose to use all natural and organic ingredients. although that doesnt change the calorie intake it is gratifying knowing I am not eating hydrogenated dye filled food. Kudos to this recipe.. - 10 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Used a 13x9 pan, and baked for 50 min total. Delicious, and everyone enjoyed it . Because some said it was dry, and I'm in deserty Colorado, added 2 egg yolks and 1/2 cup yogurt and 1 cup chocolate chips. Made icing with butter, cocoa, p. sugar and Bailey's Irish Cream. - 26 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
