Chocolate Sour Cream Cake

I didn’t make the frosting but the cake recipe was excellent- moist and dense but not too heavy. Great chocolate flavor. Does not taste like it came from a box! The sour cream makes the cake soft. This is a great standard chocolate cake recipe that would also make yummy cupcakes with your favorite frosting!
