I made this cake on Fathers Day and it was the best Chocolate Cake I have ever made. The texture was very moist and it tasted very good I did substitute the sour milk with buttermilk. I will using this recipe for years to come;-)

I rated the recipe as good if you follow the ingredients. In order to make the recipe excellent I added 1 cup of butter instead of 1/2, and instead of sour milk I added buttermilk. This made the cake very moist and my family loves it.
