Every gal should have a couple of perfect chocolate cakes in her repertoire. This one is the one that, aside from Lawsuit Muffins, made my reputation as a new pastry chef at the infamous Terre Etoile Health Food Cafe and Bookstore. Terre Etoile was my trial by fire, second job as a professional baker (do we count the first job? I lasted 4 days). It was where I fell in love for the first time, made legendary Lawsuit Muffins, and learned, like the gingerbread man, to scoot from the oven to ....another frying pan. Ah, such is life. This is the loving cup of chocolate cakes. It is easy on butter and sour cream and yet yields a truffle like interior that is only perfected with its thick, dark chocolate glaze.
