The Junior League published S.F. ALA Carte cookbook from which I need the Chocolate Cake Recipe. Can anyone provide the one that uses sour cream?

Thanks,
Bahb

    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    2 eggs
    4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, melted

    frosting:
    1/2 c butter
    4 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
    4 c. powdered sugar
    1 c. sour cream
    2 tsp. vanilla

    Preheat oven 350. Beat all ingredients for 1/2 min. on low. Beat 3 mins on high. Pour into greased and floured cake pans (2 9" or 3 8"). Bake 20-25 mins, Remove and cool. For frosting: on top of double boiler, melt butter and chocolate over simmering water. Remove from heat and cool. Add powdered sugar. Blend in sour cream and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
