How to make it

  • Mix cocoa in boiling water and set aside to cool.
  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Then add cooled cocoa mixture.
  • Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda.
  • Add sour cream and vanilla alternate with dry ingredients.
  • fold in beaten egg whites (beaten to peaks, but not over done)
  • Bake at 350 degrees in a greased and floured 9" layer pan for 30 minutes.
  • Double recipe for 2 layers or for a tube pan (bake 1 hour)
  • This should be moist and fudgy. DONT OVERBAKE.
  • This cake is difficult to test.
  • I always double this for tube pan.
  • Chocolate icing:
  • This is for 1 cup of chocolate glaze.
  • Cook and stir all ingredients except the confectioners sugar (10x) over low heat until smooth.
  • Remove from heat. Beat in 10x sugar (confectioners sugar), You must dump it in all at one time.
  • Quickly, quickly stir and pour and spread out quickly on cake.
  • This dries to a tasty shiny fudgie surface. But when you add the sugar do it all fast and mix hard.
  • I use this icing over many cakes. It is soooo good. It is fudgie, shiny, crisp and so good
