Luscious Chocolate Cake

Incredibly easy, light yet so chocolatey - one bite and you're in Chocolate Heaven!


* to sour milk, add juice of one small lemon (about 1-2Tbls) to pasteurised milk - it will curdle & thicken.
While I sift my dry ingredients, I also add them to my electric mixer and allow the whisk blade to aerate them as well, then add the wet ingredients.
it SHOULD serve 8 to 10 - or 1 or 2 major chocoholics!

For a hospitalised friend I converted this to a cupcake - it makes around 30. Cook for approx 20 minutes. I doubled the quantity of icing and had enough to ice all 30. She'll be able to keep them in her fridge and have her chocolate cravings met!

Made this using sour cream (as there was a tub in the fridge) and it was delicious. Oh so moist and very light. Thanks for the recipe.

Glad you enjoyed it! Nice idea substituting the sour cream for the soured milk... will have to give it a try. Thanks for your feedback & suggestion ;-)
