      Beat with an electric mixer at low speed, scraping bowl constantly, for 1/2 minute.
    4. 4
      Increase speed to high and beat an additional 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.

    6. 6
      Bake in a preheated 350 degree F.
    7. 7
      Oven for 35 minutes or until cake tests done.
    8. 8
      Cool in pans on racks for 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Remove from pans and cool completely on the racks.

      Frost sides and top of the cake with the remaining Sour Cream/Chocolate Frosting.

      Add chocolate which has been melted and cooled and vanilla.
    16. 16
      Beat until smooth.
    17. 17
      Try this little trick when making this cake.
    18. 18
      Take the layer that has the least amount of rise on the top and trim it to be flat with a sharp knife.
    19. 19
      Place the trimmed side down (layer should be upside down).
    20. 20
      Then frost between layers and place the other layer on right side up and finished frosting.
    21. 21
      It will give the illusion of having a cake with only one domed layer and will sit better on your cake plate.
    22. 22
      Also the trimmings are great eating just plain for the cook or for the kids.

      This was a really easy cake to make! I substituted soy butter and tofu sour cream and no one could tell the difference! I am making this again for a chocoholic co-worker, and I am sure she will love it!
