Sour Cream Chocolate Cake

This is a very special recipe that my Mother would make for her bridge club, all of her friends just loved this cake. In her later years she lived with me and my husband so I would make it for her and some of her friends when they would get together. This is a very dense cake and very rich, I have updated the recipe just a bit and use a different frosting that cuts down on the time.Today I am presenting the cake on my husbands Mothers "everyday" cake plate. She called it her everyday cake plate and then had a crystal plate for more special occasions. We love and enjoy the special family recipes and heirlooms that have been passed down to us, very special memories.
