This is a dense and moist chocolate cake, reminiscent of fudge. Enjoy as is without icing, or for a truly decadent treat, ice with your favourite chocolate buttercream or ganache.
Instead of the tube cake tin, you can use 2 (23cm) round cake tins or 2 (20cm) round cake tins. Adjust baking time as needed.
Very easy to make...I doubled the portions to make a double layer cake. Awesome!!!!! - 05 Jan 2013
This cake was very moist and tasty, though I feel it could use more chocolate than what was given on the recipes, maybe 2 oz. But, delicious! I used a chocolate glaze on top, too with powdered sugar, very tastey! - 23 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very easy to make. I ommitted the sour cream and only put in 1 cup of sugar as I couldn't get bitter chocolate only the normal dark kind, but it rose beautifully and tasted great. - 13 Sep 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
