Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    cup alkalized (Dutch process) cocoa powder

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 1/3

    cups sugar

  • 2

    large eggs, at room temperature

  • 1

    cup sour cream

Directions

Set a rack at the middle level of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour 2 (9 by 1 1/2-inch) round cake pans. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda in a mixing bowl and stir well to mix. Sift the dry ingredients onto a piece of parchment or waxed paper and set aside. Beat the butter and sugar together in an electric mixer set at medium speed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating smooth after each addition. Lower mixer speed to low and beat in half the dry ingredients. Scrape bowl and beaters well. Add the sour cream and scrape again, then beat in the remainder of the dry ingredients. Scrape batter into prepared pans and bake cake 30 to 35 minutes, or until well risen and a toothpick or knife inserted into the center of the cake is clean. Cool in pans on a rack for 5 minutes, then turn out of pans. Turn cake over again so it stands right side up to finish cooling
