This sour milk chocolate cake is so moist and the perfect way to get rid of sour milk.


Mom would never throw away food, back in the 1940s things were tight for money and nothing went in the garbage, she always found a way to use it.


The cake was a simply delicious treat we would all look forward to and secretly happy the milk went bad.


As the years went on sometimes we would change it up with a filling or whipped cream topping, but it tasted great plain.


Chocolate cake from scratch can be intimidating but seriously this sour milk cake is super simple and perfect every time.
