When I read this recipe I loved the ingredient list and the simplicity of putting it together without any electrical machinery. I liked being able to zero out the scale and add the next ingredient. So simple. Taste and texture of the cake is delicious and the recommended frosting brings the cake to sublime chocolate delight experience. A simple snacking cake type recipe with superior chocolate cake results. I will make this cake a million more times I’m sure!!
Hi, Patricia! What a nice note! Thanks for taking the time to tell me how much you enjoyed the cake.
I have made this cake so many times. I cut back the cocoa a bit so it’s not to dark. So so moist!! Everyone who tastes it loves it!!
Hi, Joanna! I’m glad you love the cake! Thanks for taking the time to let me know!
Delicious and hits the spot for any and all chocolate cake cravings! Love that sour cream is included in both the cake and frosting. I will definitely be making this again! I’m still thinking about this cake a week after baking and eating it with family…. I did cut the sugar in the cake by 30% and didn’t miss out on the sweetness, especially when combined with the chocolate frosting recipe. Thanks!
Hi, Tricia! I’m glad you enjoyed the cake. Thanks for letting us know you cut some of the sugar and it still tastes great!
Is there a substitute to eggs in this recipe?
Hi, Vaishnavi! Thanks for your question! I’ve never made this cake without eggs. I know people who follow vegan diets have many ways of replacing eggs in cakes. You might want to try making a flax “egg” and use it to replace the egg in this cake. We have step by step instructions on how to make a flax “egg” right here!
Thankyou Summer, will give this a try.
I made the cake today with my kids and it’s just too good to be true! And so easy to make! We didn’t feel like making frosting so we just melted some semi-sweet chocolate, drizzled it over the cake and sprinkled with crashed roasted pistachios. It has the rich chocolate taste but it’s light, fluffy, moist and not too sweet! Thank you!
Hi, Alex! Thanks for letting me know how much you enjoyed the cake! I love the way you topped it!
Best Chocolate Cake I have ever made! I then made a buttercream frosting as I felt a chocolate one would have been too rich. Thank you!
Baked this cake today. A definite keeper. Serious yumminess!Love that the recipe measures are by weight. It is truly the only way to bake. Thank you!
Hi, Joanne! I’m glad put this recipe in your keeper file! Thanks for letting me know you liked it!
Hands down, best chocolate cake I have ever made. Complete with the cream cheese frosting there something so light, moist, perfect. My children have devoured half of it in less than 24 hours and it is going to become a standard in this house!!
Ahhh, this makes me so happy to hear! Thanks, Eileen, for letting me know your family loves this Sour Cream Chocolate Cake!
Simple perfection! Easy to prep. The biggest pain in the butt was the sifting, but the yumminess of the cake made it worth it!
Hi, Naomi! Thanks for leaving a comment! I’m glad you found the cake so delicious!
Hi, do you sift the dry ingredients after the ingredients are weighed or before the ingredients are weighted?
Hi, Holly! You would sift them after they are weighed. Good luck!
