A local restaurant serves this cake it is delicious! By looking at the recipe it looks complicated by after making it, it wasn' that bad! I copied the original recipe, but I used all purpose flour and I didn't sift anything. It still turned out great!

  1. Cake: Melt chocolate; set aside to cool. Cream butter in large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar beating well. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add chocolate and vanilla; Mix well.
  2. Combine flour, soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in boiling water. (Batter will be thin).
  3. Pour batter into 2 greased and floured 8 inch cake pans. Bake at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks. Split cake layers in half horizontally to make 4 layers.
  4. Filling: Beat whipping cream, vanilla and powered sugar together until soft peaks form. If needed add a little more powered sugar to get to thicken.
  5. Spread filling between layers.
  6. Frosting: Beat first 5 ingredients together until light and fluffy. Add cream if too stiff. Put icing on top and sides of cakes.

This recipe was made specifically to be shared elsewhere (because of the mocha frosting), & that's exactly what happened ~ My other half was most happy to take it to work & share with co-workers, & 6-7 of them devoured it in no time! It definitely rates a big THANK YOU & 5 stars!! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees at the tail end of the current PAC]
