this was the best cake i have ever tasted and had the pleasure to make!
I absolutely love this cake!!!! It's so easy and so moist and disappears in a snap, my whole familly can't wait to get a piece and have a glass of milk...I also use coffee instead of water as it just adds something special to chocolate. I usually just frost it with a ready-made chocolate frosting from the pantry.
It was very yummy indeed. I added 2 T Special dark cocoa and upped the sour cream to 3/4 c - 1 c (I've made it twice). I also have replace the water with coffee. My 3 year old son is really happy when he sees this cake...I top it with a chocolate chip butter coffee glaze (1 1/2 c chips -semi sweet;3 T coffee 3/4 c butter - melt chips with coffee in a saucepan add butter 1 T at a time keep stirring until smooth. Place pan in ice and stir until desired consistency - the firmer the better(for us).
LOVE this cake!!!!! It is so easy, only one bowl, and it is so moist and yummy!!!!!! I am baking this right now for the 2nd time. My 1st one I made with Dark Chocolate cake mix and vanilla pudding, it was what I had.Also, threw a handful of chocolate chips in, DH loves them. Only baked if for 50 minutes and it came out perfect. Like that this recipe uses only 1/4 cup. canola oil. Did put a vanilla glaze on the cake. Thanks so much for posting Mimi :)
