    So I made this cake because I needed to use us a cup of sour cream before it went bad. This cake is amazing! I love it and plan on using it for Chocoflan. I did use cake flour instead of all purpose BUT it was so soft and fluffy! I did not add the frosting on top because of calories lol just kidding! I just thought it was sweet enough. I use Mccafe Medium roast coffee and it was not overpowering. Thank you Summer! :)

    Perfection in a pan!!!
    I followed the recipe to the letter because what is the point of making all kinds of changes to something and then commenting on it??? Suggestions for next time are fine, but what is the point of changing everything about a recipe and then reviewing it? (Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine.) Anyway, this made the most moist, chocolatey, delicious cake I think I have ever had. The sour cream frosting reminded me more of a chocolate cheesecake flavour, which is perfect for those of us who don’t care for cloyingly sweet frosting but also are not huge fans of the bitterness of dark chocolate ganache. This cake strikes a perfect balance and I think will appeal to all. As my husband stated “Perfection in a pan!”

    As a novice baker, this cake turned out pretty good and it wasn’t tooth-achingly sweet. It was then frosted with a cream cheese frosting which my niece devoured. However, the inside of the cake seems kinda too moist and not as fluffly as I would have imagined despite the toothpick coming out clean after 35 min in two square pans at the desired temp. Any advice?

    Another thing, although I made this cake with natural (non-alkalised) Ghiradelli’s cocoa powder this time around, would Hershey’s natural cocoa powder be dark enough for this recipe? Will it taste just as nice with Hershey’s?

    Thanks for the great recipe!
