Best Ever Rich Chocolate Fudge Cake

Best Ever Rich Chocolate Fudge Cake created by Julie G.

I have seen many fudge cake recipes, but I believe this one takes the cake *heh* because of the sour cream & brown sugar. It is rich and if you love cake you will think you died and went to heaven! 8)

    After reading Claire #3's review, I thought I would share my experiment with this recipe. I made this cake for my husband's birthday but instead of 3 sq of chocolate, I used 4. and instead of the 1 c boiling water, I used 1/3 c hot water, 1/3 c Kahlua, and 1/3 c vodka. It was wonderful and very moist. I found this recipe in a "Southern Living" 1983 annual cookbook. It has a whipped cream filling and a mocha frosting.
