It's not a true Texas anything cake unless you use real butter and shortening. Also, it has to be iced with a combination of melted butter, cocoa, milk and 1lb. box of confectioners' sugar. The original cake recipe calls for buttermilk, but the sour cream is interesting and I might try it some time.
