richberry Sour Cream Chocolate Cake

This easy chocolate sour cream cake is made with sour cream, cocoa powder, and hot coffee. It's the perfect balance of decadence and simplicity. And since most of the ingredients are high in acidity levels, it makes it perfect to be paired with richberry.

Yield: one 9x13 cake (10 to 12 servings)


· 2 cups all-purpose flour (250g)

· 3/4 cup dark cocoa powder (70 g)

· 2 teaspoons baking soda

· 1 teaspoon kosher salt

· 2 large eggs

· 1 cup sour cream

· 3/4 cup canola oil

· 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

· 1 cup strong piping hot coffee

· 1 batch chocolate or cream cheese frosting

· 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar (360 g)


Preheat the oven to 300°F. Butter and flour a 9x13 cake pan. Set aside.

Sift the dry ingredients: In a large bowl, sift together flour, dark cocoa powder, and baking soda. Whisk in the kosher salt.

Whisk the wet ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, canola oil and vanilla extract until it looks homogenous and creamy.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir together with a stiff spatula. The batter will be thick like frosting.

Add the coffee: Pour in the piping hot coffee. The batter will look like mud pies in a muddy lake. Keep stirring until all the liquid is incorporated and it is a homogenized cake batter.

Bake the cake: Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place in the oven and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean.

Cool the cake: Take the cake out of the oven and set it on a baking rack to cool. After about 30 minutes, spread the frosting on top. Cut and serve the cake straight from the pan.

Consume Miracle Berry: Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.

Fact: The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.

Note: Sometimes you may need to add at least 5-7% of the total quantity of sugar required, this is due to the chemistry of the food, however, you may skip this as you wish. The goal is to totally reduce sugar and yet experience the same taste.
