    Ocean~Ivy's Note:

    I have seen many fudge cake recipes, but I believe this one takes the cake *heh* because of the sour cream & brown sugar. It is rich and if you love cake you will think you died and went to heaven! 8)

      I haven't tried this one, but by looking at it I can tell that substituting 1 cup of coffee for the 1 cup of water would take it to a whole new level. I'll report back when I try the recipe.

      OK, last night I gave this recipe four stars, but after tasting it today with icing (Dark Chocolate Cake with Double Fudge Icing), I must say that this was the best homemade chocolate cake I've had! It certainly takes the icing to make this sweet and fudgy enough for my tastes -- but WOW! What a combo when they are combined. BTW, I reserved a bit of batter for a test-run without the 1 c. water, and really liked it. It didn't LOOK as moist or fudgy, but the flavor of the cake was stronger & richer, with a nice crispy top.

      After reading Claire #3's review, I thought I would share my experiment with this recipe. I made this cake for my husband's birthday but instead of 3 sq of chocolate, I used 4. and instead of the 1 c boiling water, I used 1/3 c hot water, 1/3 c Kahlua, and 1/3 c vodka. It was wonderful and very moist. I found this recipe in a "Southern Living" 1983 annual cookbook. It has a whipped cream filling and a mocha frosting.
