1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line bottom of two 8-inch-diameter cake

In a large bowl, stir together eggs, vanilla, and sour cream. Add cocoa

10 minutes. Slip a knife around edge of each cake pan, invert cakes onto a
cooling rack, and cool completely. 4. Place one cake layer on an 8-inch
cardboard cake round or serving dish. Spread layer with 3/4 cup frosting.
Top with second layer and frost top and sides of cake. Chocolate Frosting:
Fill a large skillet with water to a depth of 1-1/2 inches and bring to a
boil. Chop semisweet chocolate into pea-sized pieces and place in a metal
mixing bowl. Turn off heat under skillet, place mixing bowl of chocolate in
hot water, and stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in sour cream, vanilla,
and butter until smooth. Let rest at room temperature until spreading
