Hey everybody,
I just read a recipe on Nigella Lawson’s book “How To Be a Domestic Goddess” of a cake called Sour Cream Chocolate Cake with Sour Cream Icing, and Nigella credited it to Rose. I’ve searched the cake bible for the recipe but I have yet to find the recipe. The closest recipe i have found is the domingo, but that’s not close enough.

Nigella’s recipe is quite similar to this one: http://www.nigella.com/recipes/view/old-fashioned-chocolate-cake-119
only there’s a slight difference in the butter [200g instead of 175], leavening agents [3/4 tsp b. powder and 1/4 tsp soda vs. 1 tsp. powder and 1/2 tsp. soda] and vanilla [1.5 tsps vs. 2].
Does anybody know what is Rose’s recipe? I’m just interested to see the difference in ingredients and methods.

Thank you all in advance!

It sounds like everything is exactly the same as the domingo except the flour, which is more.  I’d say either the flour is a typo or else there’s something about the UK version of the Domingo that is intentionally different, like maybe they need a different formula for thier unbleached flour.  But I’ve never heard that as a fix for unbleached flour.
