[Don't bother trying to clean your glasses or rub your contacts - the above picture has the lovely "halo" effect after letting my kids "use" the camera and they tried to, I don't know, clean the lens with a finger or something.]
You know how sometimes you get a craving for something, so you get the food that you think you’re craving but it’s just not quite right? I do that with chocolate cake. I’ll see a picture or read a recipe and think “ooh, chocolate cake sounds really good,” and it’s all I can think about until I make it (don’t worry, my family has no problem with this particular issue).
It never quite hits the spot, though. The chocolate’s there (and I’m always good with chocolate) but there always seems to be something missing.
This, however, is exactly what I crave when I think of chocolate cake. The cake itself is made with sour cream, which I love in sweet foods, and the frosting is simply melted chocolate with sour cream, too. The cake is also cut into layers with raspberry jam in between, which just adds to the perfect-ness of it all. This is a craving-worthy chocolate cake.
