Tripple Chocolate Cake

I think the name says it all...


  • 3 cups packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened

  • 4 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa

  • 1 tablespoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/3 cups sour cream

  • 1 1/3 cups boiling water

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine

  • 3 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate

  • 3 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate

  • 5 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. In a mixing bowl, cream brown sugar and butter. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat on high speed until light and fluffy. Blend in vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add alternately with sour cream to creamed mixture. Mix on low just until combined. Stir in water until blended.

  2. Pour into three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. For frosting, in a medium saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Cool several minutes. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, sour cream and vanilla. Add chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Frost cooled cake.
