Mona’s Sour Cream Cake

Updated: Jan 3, 2020


Here is my 500th posted recipe. I can’t believe that I have been doing this for that long. When I saw that I was getting close to this post, I knew that I wanted to honor my mother by posting one of her recipes. So here is one of her sweet ones. I don’t remember this recipe from her childhood days. A day or two after she passed, a friend of hers made this cake for the family. My older siblings remembered this cake. It was one of the moistest cakes I had eaten. Her friend said that my mother shared the recipe with her and it was one of her families favorite desserts. So Mom, this 500th recipe is for you.

1/2 cup Butter

2 cups Sugar

4 tablespoons Cocoa

1 cup Boiling Water

2 Eggs

1/2 cup Sour Cream

2 cups Flour

1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda

1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugar. Add cocoa and mix well. Add unbeaten eggs and blend. Add sour cream, then flour gradually. Pour water over baking soda and add to the above mixture and mix well. Add vanilla. Bake in an ungreased and floured pan for 30 to 35 minutes. When cool, top with your favorite icing.
