gluten free sour cream chocolate cake recipe

I say you can never have too many chocolate recipes and especially for myself as a blogger I say the more chocolate cake recipes I can share with you all the better.
This recipe is gluten and dairy free too for I used Tofutti dairy free sour cream in the batter but you can always use regular sour cream if you do not have a dairy issue.
It is always nice to have a simple chocolate cake recipe that you can make easily and serve when you are having family or friends over.
As usual I used Compliments gluten free flour blend for this recipe but feel free to use your own favourite gluten free flour blend. I find this blend works the best for me, especially living here in Calgary where it is not only dry with very little humidity but also is high in altitude.
I hope you give this recipe a try and I would love to hear how the recipe worked for you.
