If it hadn't been this week's Tuesdays with Dorie pick, I probably wouldn't have baked this cake today simply because the weather is sooooo hot and humid. But it is a quick and lovely cake. Since some folks said that their batter baked up over the rim of the loaf pan, I took preventative measures and used some of the batter to make two little ramekins of cake.
The cake, once cooled, is sliced into three layers and raspberry jam is spread between the layers. The frosting is an easy melted chocolate and sour cream frosting. The perspective is a little off in the picture: the little cakes are cupcake sized and the loaf is 9x5.
We ate one of the little cakes tonight, but the loaf is in the freezer to save for another time. Couldn't eat everything, as I also baked Dorie's Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler today!
