      Title: Sour cream chocolate layer cake
 Categories: Cakes, Chocolate
      Yield: 12 servings
      2 c  Flour, Unbleached, Sifted
      2 c  Sugar
  1 1/4 ts Baking Soda
    1/2 ts Baking Powder
      1 ts Salt
    1/4 c  Vegetable Shorteneing
    3/4 c  Sour Cream
      1 ts Vanilla Extract
      2 lg Eggs
      1 c  Water
      4 oz Baking Chocolate

    1/3 c  Butter Or Regular Margarine
      3 c  Confectioners' Sugar
    1/2 c  Sour Cream
      3 oz Baking Chocolate
  Sift togetehr the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
  into a large mixing bowl.  Add shortening, sour cream, vanilla, eggs,
  water and chocolate (melted then cooled).  Beat with an electric
  mixer at low speed, scraping bowl constantly, for 1/2 minute.
  Increase speed to high and beat an additional 3 minutes, scraping
  bowl occasionally. Pour batter into 2 greased and waxed-paper lined
  9-inch round cake pans. Bake in a preheated 350F. Oven for 35
  minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pans on racks for 10
  minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely on the racks. Place one
  cake layer on serving plate. Spread with Sour Cream / Chocolate
  Frosting.  Top with second cake layer.  Frost sides and top of the
  cake with the remaining Sour Cream/Chocolate Frosting. SOUR
  CREAM/CHOCOLATE FROSTING: Combine the softened butter or margarine,
  confectioners' sugar, and sour cream in a mixing bowl; blend well.
  Add chocolate which has been melted and cooled and vanilla.  Beat
  until smooth. NOTE: I have seen reference to people having trouble
  with their layer cakes and how they rise.  Try this little trick when
  making this cake. Take the layer that has the least amount of rise on
  the top and trim it to be flat with a sharp knife.  Place the trimmed
  side down (layer should be upside down). Then frost between layers
  and place the other layer on right side up and finished frosting.  It
  will give the illusion of having a cake with only one domed layer and
  will sit better on your cake plate. Also the trimmings are great
  eating just plain for the cook or for the kids.
