  • 3 ounces Baking Chocolate Buttons
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 

  • 1 tsp baking soda 

  • 1/2 tsp salt 
1 cube butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar 

  • 1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs 

  • 1 cup real sour cream

Melt chocolate slowly in microwave or over double boiler. Grease and lightly flour two 8 inch round pans. Stir flour, baking soda, and salt together and set aside. Cream butter and mix in sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on medium speed until well blended. Stir in melted chocolate and sour cream. Add dry ingredients and 1 cup cold water alternately to beaten mixture, beating after each addition. Turn batter into prepared pans. Bake in a 350° oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until done. Cool ten minutes on wire racks. Remove from pans, and cool thoroughly before frosting.
