One of the best chocolate cakes that I’ve ever tasted is this
deep chocolate sour cream pound cake. It’s crazy how no one
could get enough of it! Check it out.
You’ll Need (for the cake):
1 ½ cups of all purpose flour.
½ cup of cake flour.
1 cup of Dutch processed cocoa powder.
2 ¼ tsp of baking powder.
½ tsp of salt.
1 ½ cups of softened unsalted butter.
2 ½ cups of caster sugar.
4 large eggs.
1 cup of sour cream.
You’ll Need (for the chocolate glaze):
1 cup of whipping cream.
1 cup of choc chips or 250g of chopped dark semi sweet
In a medium bowl, mix together the flours, cocoa powder,
baking powder and salt.
Cream the butter with an electric mixer at medium speed for 2
minutes or so until creamy. Add in sugar gradually while
beating. Beat the mixture at medium high speed for about 4
minutes until light and combined. Add the eggs one at a time
Mix together the vanilla and the sour cream in a small bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat at low
speed in three additions, alternating with sour cream in two
additions and mixing until combined.
Pour the cake in a greased pan and bake in a preheated oven
to 170°C for 65 to 75 minutes.
Let the cake set before removing it on wire rack to cool
For the chocolate glaze, boil whipping cream, take off heat
and add in chocolate.
After 2 or 3 minutes, once the chocolate is melted, stir
together until smooth.
Glaze the cake and serve the chocolate cake warm or chilled.
Simple, easy and yummy! I can promise you that if you try
this cake you will fall in love! It tastes like heaven. Just
give it a shot, you’ll thank me later.
