A moment of gratitude

29 Apr

I’m grateful that cake tastes good without frosting.

Because I couldn’t wait.

But oh man, now I kinda have a tummy ache.

Recipe: Chocolate Sour Cream Cake

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup all purpose flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 cup butter, 1 1/4 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup water

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9in x 9in cake pan.

2. Melt chocolate in a microwave.

3. In a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add the melted chocolate and slowly blend until combined.

4. Add eggs to the mixture one at a time. Beat until blended and fluffy.

5. Add the vanilla and sour cream. Blend. The mixture should be smooth, fluffy, and lighter in color.

6. Fold in half of the flour, the baking soda, and baking powder. Gently mix until just combined.

7. Add the water and gently fold in. Add the remaining flour and mix.

8. Pour batter into cake pan and bake until toothpick comes out clean, approximately 30-35 minutes.

Based on a recipe from Cupcakes! by Elinor Klivans and France Ruffenach.
