We start this delicious cake by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Next, place either parchment paper or waxed paper (I used wax paper) on the bottom of the pan and grease the paper as well as the pan.  Next, combine the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl and beat until they are well combined.

The steps for the amazing yellow sour cream cake

Add the first egg to the bowl and beat until it’s thoroughly mixed into the sugar and butter.  Add the second egg to the bowl, turn your electric mixer up to high speed and beat the egg and the ingredients together for two minutes.

After beating the ingredients together on high speed for two minutes the batter should be light in color and fluffy.

Next, add the vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, and baking soda to the bowl, stirring to incorporate them into the batter.
Starting and ending with the flour, alternately add the flour and sour cream to the bowl.  Add 1/3 of the flour, half the sour cream, 1/3 of the flour, the remaining sour cream, and then the remaining flour. Beat gently to combine the ingredient after each addition. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, and beat briefly.

At this point, the batter to the yellow sour cream cake is thick and gorgeous and ready to go into the baking pan.

Place the batter into your prepared baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 -35 minutes, until it’s golden brown on top, the edges are beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Is this gorgeous or what!  Let the cake cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes turn the cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

While the yellow cake is cooling…

We can start the frosting.  First, melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, add the cocoa. Stir constantly until it just comes to a boil. Boil for one minute, take the pan off the heat and transfer ingredients to a bowl big enough for you to make the frosting in.  Let it cool completely. After your cake has cooled completely and you’re ready to frost it, add the powdered sugar alternately with the milk to the cooled cocoa mixture to get a spreading consistency.  Lastly, add the vanilla and stir it into the frosting.
I always place wax paper under the edges of a cake while I frost it.  The serving plate stays nice and clean that way.   The frosting recipe makes one cup, just enough to get a nice top layer onto the cake.
 I chose to go with Hershey’s Fudge Frosting recipe to top the cake.  Nobody does chocolate frosting like Hershey.  The flavor of the chocolate in the frosting was as perfect as the vanilla flavor in this delicious moist Classic Yellow Cake from King Arthur Flour. My husband who isn’t a fan of frosting at all said….”There’s just enough chocolate on the cake to make you want more”.  Very well said, honey. You have two wonderful flavors combined in this delicious cake and frosting and believe me, it’s heaven to taste

Ingredients

Cake ingredients:

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sour cream

Chocolate Frosting

  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 – 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • For the cake:

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9 inch cake pan that’s at least 2 inches deep.

    Place the sugar and butter into a large bowl. Beat the two together until they are thoroughly combined.

    Add one egg to the bowl with the butter and sugar, beat until well combined. Add the second egg to the bowl.  After you’ve added the second egg, beat it in with your electric mixer on high speed for 2 minutes; the batter will lighten in color and become fluffy.

    Add the vanilla extract, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, stirring to combine.

    Alternately add the flour and sour cream to the mixture. Add 1/3 of the flour, beating until it’s just combine, add half the sour cream, beating until just combined, add another  1/3 of the flour, beating until just combine, the remaining sour cream, again beating until just combined and the remaining flour, beating until just combined.

    Spoon the batter into the pan. Bake the cake for 30 to 35 minutes, until it’s golden brown on top, the edges are beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven to a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.

    After 10 minutes, turn the cake out of the pan onto a rack to cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting:

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the cocoa, cook, stirring constantly, just until the mixture begins to boil. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl, cool completely. Add powdered sugar alternately with milk to cocoa mixture, beating to a spreading consistency. Stir in vanilla.
