Tessa's Recipe Rundown...
Taste: Super ultra chocolaty which I personally think is about 1,000 times more flavorful than plain pound cake!
Texture: Ridiculously rich, fudgy, and dense without being too much.
Ease: Super easy and totally doable.
Appearance: The glaze makes each slice look so elegant.
Pros: Simple, rich, and versatile recipe. You can serve this cake all on its own, or a multitude of other ways.
Would I make this again? Mmmhmm.
Sometimes it’s the simplest things in life that are the best. Take this Chocolate Pound Cake recipe as an example. It’s a basic yet rich cake batter that’s baked in a loaf pan and covered with a simple glaze. There’s no special equipment, no laborious decorating, and you’re not dirtying every mixing bowl in your kitchen. It’s simple yet scrumptious. Pound cake is rich and dense on its own, but when you add chocolate to the mix not only does it elevate the cake to a whole new flavor level, but it ends up falling somewhere in between fudgy brownie and moist cake. It doesn’t get much better than that!
You can serve this cake with some fresh whipped cream or even ice cream to take it to a whole new realm of deliciousness. I personally love it with fresh berries. If you cut the slices into cubes, it makes a perfect addition to any trifle!
