One Bowl Chocolate Layer Cake


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 40 min





    • 3 cups milk or semi sweet chocolate chips (18 ounces)
    • 1 1/2 cups sour cream or non dairy substitute, at room temperature


    • 2 cups flour
    • 1-1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 cup water
    • 1-1/2 sticks butter or margarine (not spread), at room temperature (3/4 cup)
    • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt


    Make the Frosting:

    1. Melt chocolate chips according to package directions. Immediately whisk in sour cream. Scrape into a metal bowl. Refrigerate, stirring a few times, until thick enough to spread (may take up to 4 hours). Makes 31/4 cups.
    1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
    2. In a large bowl with electric mixer on low speed, combine all the cake ingredients and beat ingredients just until blended.
    3. Increase mixer speed to high and beat 3 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl a few times.
    4. Divide batter between prepared pans. Spread evenly.
    5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until a pick inserted in center of cakes comes out clean.
    6. Cool in pan on rack 10 minutes. Turn out on rack, invert and cool completely.

    To frost:

    1. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate. Spread with 1 cup frosting.
    2. Top with second cake layer. Frost sides and top with remaining frosting.
    3. The cake layers can be wrapped well and refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen up to 3 months.
    4. Make the frosting about 4 hours before you plan to ice the cake, so it has time to chill to spreading consistency.
