Sour Cream Fudge Cake

This cake is rich, moist, and chocolaty. I recently baked this Sour Cream Fudge Cake for a special occasion, filling it with Nutella and frosting it with vanilla butter cream icing. Everyone loved it! Give it a try.

Sour Cream Fudge Cake

Ingredients

Sour Cream Fudge Cake

For the cake:

  • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup Nutella

For the butter cream frosting:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 cups confectioner sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350°. Spray two 8 or 9 inch round pans with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt, sour cream, milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla until combined, scraping the bowl occasionally, about 3 minute. Pour evenly into pans.
  3. Bake until wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean, about 28 to 32 min. Allow to rest for 15 minutes. Remove from pans and place on wire rack. Cool completely! If you don’t let the cake cool before assembling it, the Nutella will melt and you’ll have a mess on your hands.
  4. For the frosting: Beat the butter with electric mixing until fluffy. Add confectioner sugar, sour cream, and vanilla, and beat until combined, fluffy, and of spreading consistency.
  5. Place one cake layer on a plate. Spread Nutella over it. Top with second layer, and then cover sides and top with butter cream frosting.

Toe-Curling Blueberry Muffins #Recipe @DonnaFaz

Toe-Curling Blueberry MuffinBecause September has arrived with its cooler temperatures, we can turn on the oven and begin baking again. (Baking is a favorite pastime of mine!) I’m using this recipe for Toe-Curling Blueberry Muffins in a new novella I am currently writing. The recipe will be included in the book, but I just couldn’t wait so I’m posting it here. Blueberry muffins with crumble topping are my favorite. These are easy to make. If you decide to give this recipe a try, I hope you’ll let me know if they make your toes curl!

Toe-Curling Blueberry Muffins

Makes 8 large muffins

For the muffin batter:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

For the topping:

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, softened

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Prepare muffin pan by spraying with cooking spray.
  2. To make muffin batter: combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, milk, and egg. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir just until all the dry ingredients are incorporated. Do not over mix. Gently stir in the blueberry just until they are well distributed. Do not mash the fruit.
  3. To make topping: in a small bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Add the softened butter and stir with a fork until all ingredients are combined. Topping will be crumbly.
  4. Fill the muffing tins to the top with batter and top each muffin with a heaping tablespoon of topping. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the muffins comes out clean.
