Noni's Sour Cream Chocolate Cake With Brown Sugar Icing

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by KennKonn

Noni was a tiny little lady from home, she was my Grandma's best friend for 80+ years. She made the best chocolate cake with this thick sweet icing. She used make it at the lake every summer in the old wood stove.

Good chocolate cake BUT THE ICING IS TO DIE FOR. I garnished with chopped toasted pecans. Thanks for sharing.
