    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    My MIL's recipe -- Another cake from the great state of Texas that my family has enjoyed for about 40 years -- This cake is made with more butter, and 1 cup of sour cream, instead of the 1/2 cup called for in most recipes here on Zaar. ******NOTE: Feel free to make this cake the day before you plan to serve -- as some of the reviewers have mentioned, it is even better the day after baking! ****** Can also be baked in two 9-inch layers (metal pans) at 350F for 25-30 minutes!

      OMG this is one amazing cake!!! Every time I think I've found the ultimate chocolate cake recipe here, I find another one even better! I loved this for it's ease of preparation (especially since you can mix it with a wooden spoon-no need to pull out the electric mixer for this!) The taste is extraordinary...so moist and so tender! The frosting was out of this world, but I did change a couple of things...for one I cut the powdered sugar back to about 3 cups because I hate cloyingly sweet frosting and I also toasted the pecans which really added a depth of flavor and texture to the frosting. My friends all said it was the best cake they have ever tasted! Thank you for sharing this...and thank your MIL as well!

      Wow, this is a great chocolate cake!! I have tried many others, but this is the best so far! I had only half a cup of sour cream, so I used a half cup of milk with a bit of vinegar to sour it, worked perfectly! Thanks for posting! :-)

      Wow, what an awesome cake Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle. This is by far the best chocolate cake ever. Rich and decadent with excellant flavor. This cake was light, tender fluffy and oh so moist, it melted like mousse in your mouth. The frosting was perfect, complimenting the cake beautifully. I made 1/2 your recipe, exactly as written, in a 8 x8 square pan, it worked really well. The only change to your recipe was to omit the nuts in the frosting because of my dh's allergy. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe that was quick and easy to make. I have added your recipe to my Favorites Cookbook for 2012. Kudos
