  2. Sift flour, soda and salt into a large bowl. Beat large eggs with lowfat sour cream till blended in a medium bowl; beat in sugar and vanilla; stir in cooled chocolate mix. Beat into flour mix, half at a time, just till smooth. Batter will be thin.

  4. Make Fluffy White Frosting. Put cake layers together with about one quarter of the frosting on a serving plate; spread remainder on sides and top, making deep swirls with spatula.
  5. Heat remaining 1 square chocolate with the 1 tbsp butter in a cup set in hot water; stir till smooth. Drizzle over top of cake, letting mix drip down side.
