My girlfriend is coming by for lunch on Thursday so I decided to treat us to an old style chocolate sour cream cake. I still remember with great fondness the ones my Great Grandma made on the farm. So moist and delicious! I haven't made this recipe in a very long time so I hope it's good. It's not my Grandma's recipe…I need to try to find that one. This is one I tore out of a magazine a long time ago. Even the icing is made with sour cream. I used low fat sour cream, I know it's not what my Great Grandma would have used, everything was full fat, but I need to think of my waistline as well as satisfying a childhood craving.
Unfortunately the chocolate was too small to curl so it's just shaved on the top.
Do you have any favorite childhood memories of a special cake?
