"This was one of my favorite things to make when I learned to bake. My mom made this when we were little and it was a real treat to have this as a decadent coffee cake. This is good without any topping, but I have tried a variety of things on the top: melted chocolate frosting, powdered sugar or glaze made from powdered sugar and milk." — Joy Andrews

LOVE this cake! My son volunteered me to make a couple of cakes for his school's cake walk fundraiser and I decided to give this one a test before making it for the school. It was by far one of the easiest cakes I have ever made and it is delicious! The only draw back (if you consider it one) is that once I put it on the table for the family to try it was gone in less than five minutes. It was a huge hit and my husband is having me take one up to his work today for him and his co-workers. I am sure it will be a big hit at the cake walk and has become a family favorite!
I hate giving negative reviews but I feel like I have to on this one. I am a professional cake designer so I know my way around cake. This cake had a strange texture and was very heavy but not in a good way! The chocolate flavor was very lacking. My two year old wouldn't even eat this cake. I will stick with my own chocolate pound cake recipe. Sorry!
Excellent recipe! My first successful Bundt cake. The author is not kidding about greasing the fluted pan liberally. I used shortening and flour, make sure to get in all the creases. I ended up using buttermilk because I had precisely one cup left. I also used BAKERS squares as I did not have powdered cocoa. Both easy conversions to the original recipe simply by reducing the butter a bit. (3 Tb in my case). It is also true that the cake does not need frosting. I simply drizzled the 'Chocolate Glaze I' on top for fun. Yummy cake! Thanks for posting!
i got excited......and I'm two eggs short. I'll make this bad boy tomorrow. But that's my guess.........CHOCOLATE POUND CAKE!!!!!
This sounds sooo yummy. It takes coffee cake to the next level!
I wasn't a big fan of this recipe (sorry!). The chocolate flavour is definitely weak and it wasn't as moist as other pound cakes I've made. I followed it as written.
This cake is moist and delicious! I added coconut and pecans to the batter then frosted it with a German Chocolate cake frosting also on this site and it was wonderful, however this cake really needs no frosting. A dusting of powdered sugar for looks will do.
I am sorry, but I didn't like this cake at all. It had really unappealing consistency and flavor.
