For the Cake:

• 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
• 2 cups granulated sugar
• 4 large eggs
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 cup sour cream
• 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup hot water

For the Lux Life Flavored Sugar:

• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon lemon zest
• Edible gold dust (optional for an extra touch of glamour)


Making the Cake:

1. Preheat and Prep: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a Bundt cake pan to ensure the cake releases easily.
2. Cream the Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. This usually takes about 4-5 minutes.
3. Add Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs one at a time, making sure each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Then mix in the vanilla extract.
4. Mix in Sour Cream: Add the sour cream to the batter and mix until smooth.
5. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
6. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the hot water. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix just until combined; do not overmix.
7. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan, smoothing the top with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
8. Cool: Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then invert it onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Preparing the Lux Life Flavored Sugar:

1. Prepare the Sugar: In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and lemon zest. Mix until the zest is evenly distributed.
2. Add Gold Dust (Optional): If you want to add a touch of glamour, mix in a small amount of edible gold dust.
3. Sprinkle on Top: Once the cake has cooled completely, generously sprinkle the flavored sugar over the top. The sugar will add a delightful crunch and a hint of lemon flavor, enhancing the overall taste and presentation of the cake.

Serving and Enjoying

Slice the cake and serve it on your finest dessert plates. Each bite should offer a rich, moist chocolate flavor complemented by the zesty crunch of the flavored sugar. This cake pairs beautifully with a cup of coffee or a glass of sparkling wine for an extra touch of luxury.
