Jamie Deen's One Bowl Chocolate Cake

So if you have not guessed so far, I love chocolate :)  This past week I was on vacation from work and decided I wanted to try a new cake.  I have been watching Jamie Deen's new show on the Food Network.  His show is all about making dinner for his family, its called Home for Dinner with Jamie Deen and I am in love with it.  On one of the shows he made a One Bowl Chocolate Cake, and I decided this week I would try it out.  So here is the recipe, and again this is Jamie Deen's cake recipe not my own so full props to Jamie Deen.

Jamie Deen's One Bowl Chocolate Cake


Nonstick baking spray w/ flour (I used regular PAM because I did not have the kind w/flour and the cake did not stick)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup warm water
1 stick melted unsalted butter, cooled
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 stick unsalted butter
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups confectioners' sugar
2/3 cup sour cream


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray two 9 in round cake pans with PAM.
Add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt to the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.  Turn on mixer and let dry ingredients blend for a min.  Turn mixer up and while running, add the eggs (one at a time), the buttermilk, warm water, melted butter and vanilla extract.  Beat until combined, about two minutes.  The batter will be thick.

Evenly divide the batter between the two pans.  Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean about 30 minutes.  Cool in pans 10 minutes. then turn out onto wire rack to finish cooling.  Cool completely before icing.

Add butter to a medium saucepan over med. heat.  Add chopped chocolate and stir to melt.  Remove from heat.  Stir in cocoa, and vanilla. Using an electric mixer beat in the confectioners' sugar.  Slowly beat in the sour cream.  Let cool for 20 minutes.

Frost cake by spreading the frosting between the layers, then top with cake, and continue frosting the top and sides of the cake.

The cake was really good.  I was surprised by how much I liked the sour cream in the frosting.  Over all I would make this cake again.  :)
