Ingredients

2 ounces
unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 teaspoon
vanilla extract
1 cup
sugar
1 teaspoon
baking soda
1/2 teaspoon
salt
1/2 cup
butter
1 cup
sour cream
2  
eggs
1 1/4 cup
all-purpose flour

Instructions

Grease and flour 2- 8” cake pans or 1-deep 10’ rectangular pan or spring form.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt chocolate and butter together in double boiler. Mix eggs, sour cream (this is actually best with cream that is gone by, out of date and a little past its prime), and vanilla. Cool chocolate slightly and add to egg/cream mixture. Mix dry ingredients with wire whisk and add to the rest.

Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees, or till done. Cool on racks and frost with whipped cream or your favorite icing.

 

Notes

This cake is also delicious with berries or fruit purée between the layers.
