Hi there dessert-loving friends, it’s Jess from Sweetest Menu. Today we are going knee-deep into the wonderful world of chocolate cake. Growing up chocolate cake was our go-to for birthdays so seeing a big piece of chocolate cake still sparks sweet memories. Plus I am yet to meet somebody who doesn’t like chocolate cake, am I right?
So let’s take a look at these Mini Sour Cream Chocolate Cakes. I cannot tell you how soft and moist these cakes are. They have a truly tender crumb and that’s where the sour cream comes in. Don’t worry, you won’t be able to taste it, but it will aid in producing a ridiculously soft chocolate cake that just about melts-in-your-mouth. Perfection in my chocolate cake books.
Then we add a smothering of creamy chocolate frosting. This frosting is my favourite because it is super smooth but still light and fluffy with a lovely depth of chocolate flavour. Instead of opting for cocoa powder in the buttercream, this recipe calls for melted semi-sweet or dark chocolate. The rich frosting makes for the perfect accompaniment to this cake. Sprinkle a few flakes of chocolate on top and you have one mouth-watering dessert.
So if you are a chocoholic like me or know someone who is, you should give these cakes a whirl. They are perfect for a party (or a party of one, no judgement here). I shared some of these cakes with my family, who gave them the thumbs up, and also froze some. Did you know you can freeze cake? Just pop it in the microwave for 20 seconds or so and it will become soft and warm as if it just emerged from the oven. Gosh I think I might go have one now!
