Sweet Nostalgia Chocolate Sour Cream Cake

I was lucky enough to be able to be a Girl Scout as a child, and back then, bake sales were an essential part of the experience.  The bake sales that I participated in as a young girl were full of delicious treats, from cakes and cookies, to brownies and pies, there was never a shortage of delicious goodies for the incredible bargain of .50 cents a piece.

One of the most sought after goods was my family’s chocolate sour cream cake.  Moist and toothsome, this cake was the star of every bake sale and now I am going to share it with you!

In my opinion, this cake is best served with a hot cup of coffee and Coffee-mate® Girl Scouts® Caramel & Coconut Coffee Creamer.  Being an ex-Girl Scout myself, I find that the flavor of this creamer is the perfect accompaniment to my bake sale dessert as the two used to go hand in hand.  It doesn’t get much better than chocolate with a side of caramel and coconut! Enjoy!
