Amazing chocolate cake. Moist, tender, lovely crumb.Rose beautifully and evenly, so it looked as good as it tasted. I made a recipe and a half and cooked it in a 15 inch pyrex sheet pan. It was a hit at my friends' 43 wedding anniversary party. I substituted buttermilk for the sour milk, but otherwise didn't change a thing. Had to send it to one of the guests, who took a huge chunk home to her husband, expecting to share it with him, but he ate the whole thing. I made a cocoa cream cheese frosting for it, because my meringue icing wouldn't stiffen because of the humidity. (In Tucson no less!) Thanks for posting this recipe. It's going to be a staple on my catering menu.
