This cake is the ultimate because it's rich, moist, and chocolatey. No one would ever guess that this layer cake is light so bake it for a crowd and wait for the raves to roll in.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Coat bottoms of 2 (8-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray (do not coat sides of pan); line bottoms of pans with wax paper. Coat wax paper with cooking spray; set aside.

Step 3

Beat sugar and butter at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Gradually add egg substitute; beat well. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. With mixer running at low speed, add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Gently stir in boiling water and vanilla.

Step 4

Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until cake springs back when touched in center. Loosen layers from sides of pans using a narrow metal spatula; turn out onto wire racks. Peel off wax paper; let cool.

Step 5

Place 1 cake layer on a plate; spread with 1/2 cup Chocolate Frosting. Top with other cake layer; spread remaining frosting over cake.
