Basic Chocolate Pound Cake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min. + cooling
Love the taste and texture of this cake. Most excellent. I do think the temperature is too high for a pound cake. Most of mine are at 325 degrees. I say this because I had my cake on 350 for 1 hr and 20 mins. I took my cake out 13 minutes early and if truth be told I should have taken it out sooner as the sides began to scorch. Will definitely bake again but will adjust the temperature down or will shorten the baking time
Can I substitute cake flour for the all purpose flower?
This is an excellent pound cake. I love to serve it with scoops of vanilla ice cream. It's definitely a recipe that I go back to time and time again.
I made this pound cake for Christmas gifts. Instead of baking it in a tube pan, I baked the batter in 2-9 inch and 1-8 inch bread pans. They baked up very nice and I used a vanilla glaze on the tops.
I'm a die hard chocoholic, I always gotta have some or anything with chocolate in it. I told my family and in laws that I would not be able to work in a candy factory. why you might ask? Think about that episode of I Love Lucy where she and Ethel got jobs working in one and when the conveyor belt sped up, they couldn't get the chocolates wrapped fast enough. They ended up eating some or trying to hide some in their uniforms lol.
A wonderful cake, easy to make , very yummy.
This is sooo delish!! I didn't have any lard so used about a 1/4 c. Canola oil. I also baked it in two bread loaf pans. I baked it about 45 min. It had a really good flavor, this is a keeper!
