Recipe No. 1 for Friday

Sour Cream Chocolate Fudge Cake With Chocolate Buttercream

The fact that this glorious chocolate cake takes just seconds to assemble will make you feel like a wizard with a magic wand. This is a marvelous fudgy chocolate cake and you will enjoy the simple but delicious Chocolate Buttercream. All of the cake ingredients are placed in a food processor.

8 servings , 35 min total cooking time, 5 min prep


4 eggs
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup flour
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla


1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla


In a bowl, stir together melted chocolate and melted butter until blended. Stir in vanilla. Yields 3/4 cup frosting.


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend for 30 seconds, or until the nuts are finely chopped.
Pour batter into a 10-inch buttered springform pan and bake in a 350°F oven for about 30 minutes, or until a cake tester, (you know, a toothpick) inserted in center, comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan. Remove cake from pan.
When cool, swirl Chocolate Buttercream on the top, in a decorative fashion and frost the sides.

NOTE: If you own a microwave oven, chocolate chips and butter can be melted together by placing in a bowl and microwaving for 1 minute on high. Turn the bowl and microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Stir together until blended.

If you don’t have springform pan then use a regular 10 inch pan and put parchment paper or waxed paper to cover the bottom of cake pan. Grease and sprinkle with flour and the cake will come out.
