  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp coarse salt
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp and 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together cocoa and hot water in a bowl until there are no cocoa chunks in it. In a separate bowl, mix together the baking soda and baking powder, the coarse salt, and the all-purpose flour.
  2. Put a saucepan on the stove on medium/simmering heat, and add the butter and the sugar and let it melt. Continuously mix it until it is completely melted. Turn the stove off, and mix it with a electric mixer until it cools off.
