DIRECTIONS

  • Butter two 9-inch round cake pans; line bottoms with parchment paper or waxed paper.
  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven; preheat to 350°.
  • Melt chocolate in a large heatproof bowl set over hot, but not simmering water; let cool.
  • In a bowl, stir the flour, baking soda, and salt together; mix well.
  • Add the butter to the chocolate, then pour in the boiling water; stir well to mix.
  • Whisk in the sugar and sour cream.
  • Stir in the flour mixture; whisk in the eggs.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pans; smooth the tops.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until test done—toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool in pans on racks for 5 minutes; then unmold onto racks to finish cooling.
  • **Recommend to frost with fluffy white frosting or whipped ganache.
