I made this recipe more than a week ago, and everyone raved about it. Including my mom who was never a fan of cakes!
She specifically told me to make this cake again the next time I go to her house end of this month.
The only other RV cake I've made all these while prior to this recipe was CMR's, and I can say this recipe has better flavor (prolly due to having the sour cream in it), but it's more dense compared to CMR's, where CMR's recipe has bigger crumbs than this.
This one, from my POV has the velvety look when you cut into it. I totally regret not taking any pictures after it being cut, wanted to, but kept forgetting.
I however, did not follow *exactly* as the recipe goes..
I did some reading on the Net on other ppl's experiences baking this cake after reading the OP's (god bless you for sharing it here, otherwise I would have never tried it
) thread, and found out I could sub some flour for the cocoa, if I wanted a less chocolatey flavor, and bringing out the buttermilk flavor. So I only used 1 TBSP of dark cocoa powder for this recipe.
I urge those who has never tried this recipe to give it a shot.
