Chocolate Layer Cake
Our light and fluffy cake doesn't come from a box.
Why This Recipe Works
“Blooming” the cocoa powder in boiling water and adding instant espresso powder to the batter produce deep chocolate flavor. Sour cream adds moisture and tang. This recipe is very versatile—change up frostings and fillings to produce all sorts of different cakes.
