I have an order for a sour cream chocolate cake for this Sunday, and the Hershey's recipe I use is good tasting and very moist in a 9X13 pan, but crumbles way too much for a layer cake. I like to torte mine pretty thin, if possible. Does anyone have another recipe, from scratch please? Thanks.
3/4 cups butter or margerine
3 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 cup cocoa powder
3 cups AP flour
5 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 f
Cream together sugar and butter. Add in eggs, one at a time. Blend in sour cream.
Mix in cocoa and 1 cup flour. Add in rest of flour and baking soda. Mix until blended.
Slowly add in boiling water (to avoid splashing) and vanilla. Mix on medium for 5 minutes.
Pour in to prepared pans. Bake until tooth pick comes out clean, (50 mins for 1/4 slab sheet)
I can't thank you enough for the recipe! Comparing the proportions to my recipe (the one that doesn't work), I guess I'll just make 1X your recipe for 2-10" rounds. I'm baking in the morning and can't wait to try it -THANKS FOR COMING TO MY RESCUE!!
how did it turn out for you? I took this cake to work today because one of the managers is transfering stores, and everyone loved it.
