  • SPONGE CAKE:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350°F Line a small baking sheet (eg, a jelly roll tin) with a parchment paper, and line a 24 cm (or 9") springform tin also with parchment paper.
  • Sift the flour. Whisk together the eggs, confectioner's sugar, flour, baking soda and sour cream, until combined.
  • Quickly pour about 2/3 of the mixture into the small baking sheet.
  • Add the cocoa powder to the remaining 1/3 of the cake mixture. Pour that into the lined round pan.
  • Place both pans in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Then remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.
  • ASSEMBLE CAKE:

  • Place the dark layer on a cake plate, and spread a thick layer of sour cream on top.
  • Cut the light cake into large cubes, then mix gently with the rest of the sour cream - you don't want to break up the cake cubes. Pile that mixture of cake cubes and sour cream on top of the cocoa base - whether you want a dome or something flatter, is up to you.
  • CHOCOLATE GLAZE:

  • Melt together the chocolate and butter, and stir until smooth. Drizzle over cake. Chill in the refrigerator for about 12 hours before serving.
