This is a lightly spiced sour cream cake. It’s easy to make (maybe on a Sunday night?). The frosting is good, a pretty straightforward chocolate frosting.
It’s not exactly a pretty cake. Yellow and square, with chocolate frosting on top. It’s functional, because sometimes you just need cake.
I think I baked mine a little too long, because while it wasn’t exactly dry, it didn’t have a super moist texture. The flavor was fine, just didn’t bowl us over. The frosting is chocolatey and pudding-like, and it’s good, but it didn’t wow us either.
Larry and I both felt the same way about this recipe. It’s an okay cake, but nothing particularly wonderful about it. I had a bite of the first slice, then never went back for more. I think Larry had a few pieces, but it mostly just sat on the counter, uneaten.
