Sounds like it will be dense and moist, can't wait to try it!
Would it be ok to use the equivalent of crisco instead of butter?
PeggyH- I haven't made the recipe but I would use oil instead of crisco if you're wanting to replace the butter.
its not that dense, rather its light n moist, i didnt try shortening even, not a big fan of it, but i replaced 1/2 cup butter with oil and turned out awesome
Thanks so much for this recipe! Sounds delicious! Just wondered.... seeing as it stands up to carving etc... does it also stand up to fondant? Looking for a good recipe that stands up to both carving and fondant! Need to make a pirate ship! :o)
if I want to replace the butter with oil, how many cups of oil will I use?
Excellent taste, great texture. Just made it! Used butter and forgot to add the sour cream, turned out great nevertheless!!! Thanks so much for sharing!
I found this recipe very dense and heavy.
Thank you so much! I too replaced 1/2 c of butter w/ oil. This cake waslight, super moist and had a fabulous chocolate flavor. This is by far my favorite chocolate cake! ... now to continue in my quest for a fantastic yellow! LOL
