{ sour cream chocolate cake }

mmm... this is so much like the chocolate cake my Grandma used to make when my cousin and I would and stay with them for a week in the summer. Of course, she made it with fresh cream from their cow, fresh eggs from their chickens and baked it in their wood stove... so I doubt my cake is quite as good as hers, but it is pretty darn good!

Here's Grandma Joy's recipe (hand written by her)... I don't think she'll mind that I'm sharing it!


  1. You've got a good memory, I can't remember that cake :( Maybe if you make it for me when I'm down the taste will bring it back to me.

  2. those recipe cards are precious. i have some that my grandma wrote down, and now that she's been gone for 18 years I treasure her handwriting.
    my favorite chocolate cakes has mayonnaise in it. this is probably similar.

  3. I'm guessing from the pic that you melted something over it after taking it from the oven - was it just melted chocolate?

  4. Girl I must need glasses b/c I can not read that recipe. Would you be so kind as to please type it out or email it to me??? Pretty please with ummm....chocolate on top???
    Thank you.
