The cake tasted very good, but I didn't appreciate how the amounts of ingredients for the cake and the frosting were lumped together. To make it less confusing for myself, I typed out the recipe, step-by-step. Also, I changed the 1 tablespoon of baking soda to 1 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1 teaspoon of baking powder. 1 tablespoon seemed excessive, and another reviewer said it affected the taste of her cake negatively. Finally, I tried to copy in the recipe here as I typed it out, but that exceeded the number of characters allowed in this review.
Wasted so much time and expensive on this recipe. I thought adding a whole tablespoon of baking soda seemed odd. Really should have looked it up online. Most similar recipes for sour cream chocolate cake call for a teaspoon of baking soda. Guess what my chocolate cake tastes like? No, not chocolate. Yucky baking soda!
This cake is spectacular. Bakes beautifully into 2 flat layers, perfect for stacking. If you make it with lactose free sour cream it is great for those who react to lactose. Just make a sour cream icing using margarine instead of butter and lactose free milk in the frosting.
Only made the cake but it was absolutely delicious! Moist, rich, great texture. Best chocolate cake I have ever made. Family loved it. Will definitely make it again. (made chocolate sour cream frosting to go with the cake but it is a recipe I have from my mother). The only compliant is that the ingredient list is confusing as the cake amts are listed together with the frosting amts. Definitely a keeper!
I made this cake just 2 use up sum sour cream b4 went bad cake is really good
Great recipe but the method is complicated for the basic cook. (Not me). It would be better having the method numbered and the cocoa listed twice. The icing ingredients are listed with the cake so may be confusing. Results are great and will make again.
This cake is moist, chocolaty and delicious. The sour cream adds the extra moisture and the flavor is amazing! I made a lighter frosting and added peanut butter cups for a little more flavor. Everyone in the house loved it!
My husband is a chocoholic and would bathe in sour cream if socially acceptable. So when I found this recipe I knew I needed to make it. It was so good the entire cake was gone in less then one day!
I have never used sour cream in my desserts, until recently for my Daisy Badge on Influenster. I must say it was the best and moist cake I have ever made. Thank you for the chance to test and review the sour cream. Great stuff!!!
This cake was super easy to make! I had never baked with sour cream before so I was a little skeptical but this cake was yummy! The icing was especially delicious!
Thanks for your review.
