TWD: Dressy Chocolate Loaf Cake


Dressy chocolate loaf cake is a recipe chosen by Amy Ruth Bakes for TWD this week. Sour cream is used in the cake as well as the frosting. Instead of baking a loaf of cake, I decided to cut the recipe in half and baked 6 cupcakes. The recipe also calls for jam to be sandwiched in between the cake, and then cover the cake with frosting. But I just went for the easy way out by smearing the top of the cupcakes with strawberry jam, and piped the frosting on top. As much as I dislike chocolate cake, this recipe actually works for me. The jam and sour cream definitely made the cake less heavy, and the texture of the cakes are soft and moist too.

If you want to give the recipe a try, head over to Amy's blog!
