Five stars for the recipe instructions! Amanda, you are a great instructor. You've put all the best tips here. Everyone could benefit from bookmarking this recipe and using its techniques for tender cakes. The texture of this cake was phenomenal, not as dense as typical pound cake. I would call this a "cocoa cake", though, because the ONLY change I made was to add twice the amount of cocoa, and it still wasn't very chocolatey. Chocolate ganache from this site topped it well. I wonder what substituting melted bittersweet chocolate for cocoa (2-4 squares) and cream cheese for sour cream would do. At least, DO add more chocolate chips!- 2 cups if you really like chocolate; just don't refrigerate it, or the chips will be hard. I'm savin' this recipe =)
